Author's Bio

Claire Barker graduated from Bath Spa University with a degree in English Literature and History. She studied illustration for a further two years and worked as a teaching assistant for several more. Claire used to live on narrowboats but now lives with her family on a small, untidy farm in deepest, darkest Devon. When she's not busy writing or illustrating she spends her days wrestling sheep, battling through nettle patches and triumphantly catching rogue chickens. Ross Collins is an award-winning illustrator who has worked on over 100 books, including titles by authors such as Michael Morpurgo, Julia Donaldson, Francesca Simon and Ali Sparkes. He has also written over a dozen picture books, including The Elephantom, which has now been brought to the stage at London's Royal National Theatre by the creative team behind War Horse . Ross studied at the Glasgow School of Art, achieving a first in Illustration, and winning the MacMillan Children's Book Prize for his first book The Sea Hole the same year.
