About the Author:

PHILIP RIDLEY was born in the East End of London, where he still lives and works. He studied painting at St Martin's School of Art and by the time he graduated had exhibited widely throughout Europe and written his first novel. As well as books and plays for adults, Philip has written many other books for children including Krindlekrax (1991), winner of the Smarties Prize and the WH Smith, Mind-Boggling Books Award, Kasper in the Glitter (1994), nominated for the Whitbread Prize, and Scribbleboy (1997), shortlisted for the Carnegie Medal. His work has been translated into seventeen languages.

From AudioFile:

Scribbleboy is a local legend whose work brightens the drab walls of Baileys new neighborhood. Will the graphic artwork endure, or will a new Scribbleboy emerge to keep the myth alive? With an over-the-top cast of characters, a fast-paced plot, and an energetic performance by Russell Boulter, this romp of a story will engage listeners in the question of how Bailey and his friends will solve the mystery of Scribbleboy. Even with the minor distractions of exaggerated stuttering and lisping, Boulter brings Bailey, Ziggy, and Ma GlamRock, as well as Levy and his rap group, to life. At times silly, at times poignant, the story offers themes of friendship, loss, and creativity that will engage listeners.
