He’s got a licence to judge! The Young Bond author returns to judge for us because it’s “great fun!”

Word Up!

Charlie’s favourite word at the moment is Zombie: “Any word beginning with a ‘Z’ is a fun word. And zombie is a great word to write, with a big Zorro-style ‘Z’ on the front. It’s a mysterious looking word for a scary creature."
