Ysenda Maxtone Graham made her name as an interviewer for Harpers & Queen and Tatler.  She is the author of The Church Hesitant, a study of the Church of England, and The Real Mrs Miniver, a life of her grandmother Jan Struther which was shortlisted for the Whitbread Biography of the Year award. Big School is her first children’s book, set in a school so enormous that it has its own underground railway to connect the classrooms.
