    Reeve writes and illustrates books for children and young adults. He has written the “Mortal Engines” Quartet, as well as its prequel quartet of novels called “Fever Crumb” Quartet. There are also the “Larklight” trilogy, “Buster Bayliss” series, and “The Railhead” series. The Larklight trilogy is definitely one of my top five favorite middle grade series of all time!

    The first book Larklight was being developed as a film by the Indian director Shekhar Kapur, but he is no longer involved. Reeve professes that when planning out a novel, "I see it as a film that I run in my head, and I just keep running alternative versions of it until I come up with a cut I like.
