Richard Scrimger has written adult novels, opinion pieces, and screenplays, but is best known for his quirky books for children. He’s won a couple of awards and led writing workshops around the world. His latest books feature a superhero who doesn’t know he’s irresistible, a sad racist, and the back end of Laura Secord’s cow. Richard may be hyperactive or confused, or he may be practicing the zen of ‘don’t know mind,’ which features curiosity, awe, and surprise. His children are now older than he is.
