Lee and Adam Parkinson are two brothers from Manchester, who work in primary education. In 2018, they set up the hugely successful Two Mr Ps in a Pod(cast), sharing light-hearted and hilarious tales from the classroom, and reminiscing on their own school days. The podcast has since amassed over 6 million listens, with sold-out live shows across the UK. Their first two books, Put a Wet Paper Towel On It and This Is Your Own Time You’re Wasting were instant Sunday Times bestsellers.Tim Sadler is a teacher, writer and illustrator.
