Paul Stewart and Chris Riddell

Paul Stewart and Chris Riddell are the co-creators of the Edge Chronicles. Paul and Chris first met at nursery school. Not theirs, but the one their sons went to. For some strange reason, which they can’t quite remember, they decided to work together. That was over ten years ago. Since then, they have created several series and books for young people.

Paul Stewart

Rolf Marriott Paul Stewart is the co-creator of the bestselling Edge Chronicles series, with Chris Riddell. He is also the author of a number of previous titles for children including The Wakening.
