Her books include The Troll, What the Ladybird Heard and the modern classic The Gruffalo , which has sold over 13.5 million copies worldwide and has been translated into over sixty languages. Julia also writes fiction as well as poems, plays and songs and her brilliant live children's shows are always in demand. Julia and her husband Malcolm divide their time between Sussex and Edinburgh.

    Emily Gravett is an artist of exceptional talent. Twice winner of the Kate Greenaway Medal, her sharp wit and seemingly effortless drawing have created such brilliant picture books as Wolves, Monkey and Me and Tidy. Cave Baby was is Emily's first picture book collaboration and marks another milestone in her career. Emily lives in Brighton.
