    Andrew Weale (Author) Andrew Weale was born in Brighton where he spent most of his days with Buster the Dog, before he was packed off to Eastbourne College to be taught how to be a grown-up! He obviously did rather well as he gained a scholarship to Oxford University to study Latin and Greek! When his studies weren't getting in the way, he did the things he REALLY wanted to do: acting and singing. And when he left University he even set up his own theatre company, which allowed him to travel the world! Then one day he saw a clairvoyant who told him he'd become a writer... Several years later that's exactly what he's started doing, with a particular love for children's books. Andrew has now written 5 books for children, including his latest picture book, Nora. Andrew has also gone back to university, this time as a lecturer for an MA course on picture books, and he gives regular presentations on his work to everyone from the age of four upwards.Ben Cort (Illustrator) Ben Cort studied Art at Buckinghamshire College and gained a Higher Education Illustration diploma at Harrow College. His picture books have been published in many languages and countries, including the hugely successful Aliens Love Underpants series. Ben lives in Bedfordshire with his wife and young children.
