Scoular Anderson spent most of his childhood writing and illustrating stories. He is the bestselling author of My First Joke Book, the How to be a . . . history series, and the Space Pirates books. He has illustrated books for many other authors. He likes drawing dogs, buildings, monsters, dogs and dogs. He hates drawing bicycles and horses (too many skinny legs and spokes which stick out all over the place.) He lives in Argyll with his wife, a grumpy old cat, and a far too exuberant Border terrier.
