  • 3 stars across 3 books
    Carol Diggory Shields is the author of The Bugliest Bug (9780744598131) and Saturday Night at the Dinosaur Stomp (9781406312683), which she was inspired to write after "being called a Nagosaurus by my five-year-old". Currently a children's librarian, Carol has also worked with children as a recreational therapist and at one time was a designer of stuffed toys. Her years of being around children have definitely helped her get a feel for the stories that kids love, told in animated verse with an infectious beat. The author of several books for children, Carol lives in northern California.

    Lauren Tobia graduated from the University of the West of England with a degree in Illustration and was highly commended in the Macmillan Children's Book Prize. The early success of the Anna Hibiscus novels by Atinuke, which Lauren illustrated, led to her illustrating the Anna Hibiscus picture books (Anna Hibiscus' Song and Splash! Anna Hibiscus). Lauren lives in Bristol with her family.
