Bingo Question

Katherine Rundell is the author of Rooftoppers’, Cartwheeling in Thunderstorms’, The Wolf Wilder’,The Explorer’, and The Good Thieves’. She begins each day with a cartwheel and believes that reading is almost exactly the same as cartwheeling: it turns the world upside down and leaves you breathless. In her spare time, she enjoys walking on tightropes and trespassing on the rooftops of Oxford colleges. ‘Impossible Creatures’, her new novel, is out now.
