Jeremy Strong

Born in Eltham on 18 November, 1949, Jeremy Strong worked in a wide range of roles - caretaker, headteacher, jam doughnut stuffer - before becoming a funny children's author. Inspired by reading the Beano when he was 16 years old (he wasn't allowed to read comics before then), his books are famous for their tongue-in-cheek and surreal sense of humour.

Jeremy won the Children's Book Award in 1997 for The Hundred-Mile-an-Hour Dog and was actually current Dennis the Menace author Steven Butler's headmaster; Steven actually credits Jeremy with developing his love of books.
