About the Author

RICHARD PLATT is an avid fan of castles and the author of many innovative and best-selling books for children, including CROSS SECTIONS: CASTLE, illustrated by Stephen Biesty.

Chris Riddell is one of the most acclaimed children's book illustrators in the United Kingdom. In addition to his skill as an illustrator, he brings to CASTLE DIARY a wicked sense of humor, perhaps the result of his years as a political cartoonist.
