    Helen Stephens gets very cold sitting at her desk, but she is a trooper and still makes lots of lovely books. She is best known for her How to Hide a Lion series, which was adapted for stage by the Polka Theatre, where they make lots of amazing children's theatre including We're going on a Bear Hunt. Helen has illustrated stories for some of her favourite authors, including Roger McGough, Michael Morpurgo, Sophie Hannah, Holly Webb and Cecile Aubry. She lives on the windy Northumberland coast with her partner and fellow illustrator Gerry Turley, her daughter and her (very smelly) scruffy mutt Peggy.
