He loves American novels, Italian food and the English countryside. When he's not writing, he likes playing old board games, strumming his guitar and joining as many rock bands as possible (currently at seven).
Peter Cottrill was born in Liverpool and loved art from an early age. After a string of different jobs, he began illustrating books and has had two picture books published. Alongside illustrating, Peter now teaches at a college in London and practices Shiatsu.

SynopsisGreta is a girl on a mission: to venture to Avalon and bring back a hero who can save her home from destruction by the monstrous giant Yuk.
Many heroes have tried before now. Many have failed.
What Greta needs is a hero whose courage and self-belief are greater than himself. She needs Hercufleas.
The only problem: he is a flea, no bigger than a raisin. But the smallest person might just have the biggest effect . . .
