In Mr.Ix's Library the books have had all the authors names removed and jumbled up.
Can you match the author's name with the correct title?
The names will reflect the title of the book when said aloud (some in a humorous way). eg:
Title:Seabirds, the author would be Albert Ross (Albatross being a type of seabird)
Just to add some confusion, there are four name elements in the mix that are red herrings.

Try these,

1) Explosives and Their Uses by ?
2) How to Escape from Tigers by ?
3) Dining Out On One Pound by ?
4) Dog Breeders Handbook by ?
5) Done Deeds by ?
6) Funeral Services by ?
7) Underpants on the Outside by ?
8) Oil Extraction by ?

Choose from:

Roland Paul Purman
Jay Dina Derek
Nynes Eileen Berra
Tacomplee Bilder Sue
Claude Fay Might
Kay Back Walker
