About the Author
Before she started writing funny stories for children, Michelle Robinson wrote copy and devised websites for some of the world's biggest brands. She always dreamed of becoming an author like her hero, Roald Dahl. She shares his birthday and his love of chocolate, but she is much, much shorter. Michelle lives in Bristol with her husband and young son.
Emily is an artist & illustrator based in North Devon, UK. She works from her studio at home and likes fine black pens, ocean dips and a good mug for tea. Emily has drawn, coloured, painted and created since she could pick up a pencil. She studied art to A Level, followed by English at the University of St Andrews, Scotland (with 2 years of art history thrown in for good measure) and from then on, has been a self taught illustrator. She fell into the world of illustration in 2008 whilst living Australia where she stumbled across a job drawing illustrations for history books, and has continued happily from there! Nowadays she loves to transport herself into the world of children's books so she can do things like fly with unicorns, hang out in a magic garden and decide how many jellyfish you could fit inside a handbag. You'll find Emily's work in books, magazines, on cards, products, fabric and the occasional surfboard and wall.
“Soothing, and likely to put rainbows in many a real window.” —Kirkus Reviews
