A son of the city of Sheffield in the north of England, N. J. Copley now lives in a small town with its own castle in East Anglia. It doesn't have as many big hills as Sheffield, but it does make riding a bike a lot easier.
Having read hundreds of bedtime stories to his small daughter, he decided that he ought to have a go at writing one himself. He did, and Fibsquiddler was born. The story then sat on the shelf to gather dust and his daughter got old enough to read her own bedtime stories.
Much later, he wondered if someone else might enjoy this story too. He hopes that you do.
