The author, GR Dix, is a scientific writer and consultant in his day job. He is passionate about encouraging reading and creative writing in children, and loves to visit schools to talk to kids about his books, whether in person or remotely. His love of books was reignited by reading stories to his three grandsons, and some stimulating conversations about names and ideas soon led to the appearance of Brian Brackbrick and his cast of supporting characters.
Brian and George always solve problems using logic, thoughtfulness and working it out step-by-step. The boys’ first port-of-call is usually the library, where they can find books on any subject, helped by the stylish librarian, Dr. Harley Letters. The other characters in the town include Fancy Nancy Sprinkle from the cake shop, Sergeant Shelley Shiplap the police officer, and Frankie Featherface from the pet shop.
