About the
Alistair Jones

Alistair says “Guhreten was written as my entry for the annual Year 7 (age 11-12) novel-writing competition at Bedford Preparatory School. Everyone in the year participated. The book could be on a subject of our choice, and had to be a minimum of 1000 words. About twenty of the best books went to the headmaster, who then had to choose a winner and a runner-up. Guhreten was the winning novel in 2007.”

Besides selling well at Alistair’s school and generally in the UK, this book is now one of the “English readers” at schools in France and Afghanistan!
