Lel Bevan grew up in West Wales in the UK. She loved writing from an early age- from fantasy stories with daring quests to poetry and letters - some even to the Queen and the Prime Minister- using ridiculous pseudonyms too silly to repeat here. She studied French and Children's Literature and completed her Bachelor of Education at Westminster College Oxford.
Formerly a primary teacher Lel likes nothing better than visiting schools and libraries to share her books with the children.
The inspiration for Lel's latest book Peanut Butter Boy comes from Lel's own battle with shyness at a young age mixed with her very own 'Peanut Butter Boy' (her son) who absolutely adores peanut butter and would eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner if he thought he could get away with it!
Peanut butter loving Peter has a problem: he is painfully shy; forever turning that ugly shade of a baboon's bum cheeks. When Peter meets his vile new teacher, Pirate Poultice, his obsession with peanut butter spirals out of control and a chain of mysterious and nutty events unfold. Peanut Butter Boy is a hilarious, heartwarming adventure of good over evil. A unique, side-tickling mystery for 8-12
