    Dr Nick Crumpton (Author)
    Nick grew up in the UK on a diet of David Attenborough documentaries and hand-me-down Sega games before reading ecology at Leeds University. He moved to beautiful Bristol to research the ancient mammals that lived during the time of the dinosaurs, before he wrote a PhD in the Department of Zoology at the University of Cambridge.
    He worked at the BBC Natural History Unit and then the Natural History Museum, London before science-ing at the Zoological Society London (on venomous mammals and Indonesian biodiversity) and University College London, where he occasionally teaches. As well as writing for children, he works as a zoological consultant and organises scientific meetings at the Royal Society.
    His favourite animals are lowland streaked tenrecs, and he has an aversion to cobras (after one very nearly bit him on his bottom when he wasn't paying attention).

    Gavin Scott (Illustrator)
    Gavin was born in Salisbury, England. He grew up in the Dorset countryside where, as a young child, he would often be found covered in mud at the bottom of the garden, holding up a grass snake or some other interesting creature to draw.
    Gavin studied Natural History Illustration at University and later went on to enter the world of character design and children's illustration.
    He now lives with his family in Somerset and when he's not working, he loves being on two wheels, especially his old Triumph motorbike. He also enjoys rock pooling and fossil hunting with his children, and the occasional beer.
