Frank Bristow grew up in the middle of Devon, in South West England, in a big house with plenty of land and surrounded by animals. He was also very lucky to be the youngest of four children and to have a father who owned a sweet factory, so you can imagine he had a wonderful childhood.
On leaving school, he spent two years in London learning how to make all sorts of sweets and chocolates.
While in London, he met Jane, his wife-to-be, and together, they continued to live in the house that Frank had grown up in.
There they brought up their two daughters, who continued having even more animals!
When Frank eventually retired, he spent more time writing, and following the publication of a short book called Sticky Stories from the Toffee Factory, he had the first book about The Bears of Bopplestone published.
This next book, The Bears of Bopplestone – Book 2 – More Tails, is the second of the series, which, one day, you may see on film…
