    Karl Newson (Author)
    Karl Newson is a children's book author and illustrator from London. He takes inspiration from songs and books and people and everything! His favourite things are elephants, stars and his two mini Mudwafflers. His least favourite thing is mashed potato - bleurgh! In his spare time he enjoys walking and listening to music from the 1960s (and singing along - badly - to them), and biscuits.

    Migy Blanco (Illustrator)
    Migy (pronounced 'Miggy') was born in Salford, England, Migy went to university in London, and then spent 10 years working in advertising and editorial illustration. After marrying, he moved to Buenos Aires. There, surrounded by the vibrancy and colour of South America, he developed a children's book style that is bold, magical and eye-catching. Migy recently moved back to the UK and, for the first time in his life, he is living outside of a mega-city, enjoying nature and exploring new inspiration. To find out more about Migy, you can visit his website.
