Mitch Johnson is an exciting talent in children's fiction. His debut novel Kick (Usborne) won the Branford Boase Award 2018 and several regional awards, including the Mal Peet Children's Award.
Pop! (Hodder, July 2020) is Mitch's new heart-stopping middle grade adventure. Queenie dreams of a world beyond her tiny town. When the priceless recipe to the world's most popular drink - thought to be lost forever - washes up at her feet, her life changes in an instant. Everyone wants it, and with a $10 million bounty on her head, Queenie's soon on the run. A story with an outrageous theft, a huge reward and two friends on the run, that ends with a bang!
As well as writing, Mitch works as a Waterstones bookseller in Norwich, where he lives with his wife and baby daughter. He graduated from the University of East Anglia with a first class degree in English Literature with Creative Writing.
