PRAISE FOR THE SKULDUGGERY PLEASANT SERIES: "This is a writer at the height of his powers and Landy is getting better with every book...

Derek Landy is the author of the internationally bestselling Skulduggery Pleasant series. He doesn't like to brag about all the awards he's won, such as the Irish Book of the Decade, or the Red House in the UK, or all the other awards that he humbly displays on his mantelpiece. He is also far too modest to mention things like the first book being a Publisher's Weekly Best Book of the Year, but would like to extend an invitation to Oprah to pop around one day for tea, in thanks for selecting his book for the Oprah's Book Club Kids Reading List. Derek plays too many video games, reads too many comics, and watches too many movies. He lives in Ireland with too many cats and too many dogs. Occasionally he talks to real people, but only when he absolutely has to.
