Charlie Sheppard, a commissioning editor for children's books at Random House, picks up the story. "I sat opposite [28-year-old Dean Carter] at the office Christmas party, and realised who he was," she says. "He's painfully shy and must just come alive when he writes. And that's what editors look for. I said, 'You must be a writer; you obviously feel the need to play with words,' and I asked him to write something for me."
