Mal Peet

  • 3 stars across 34 books
    Mal Peet and Elspeth Graham live in Devon, in a house not too far from the sea. Elspeth writes in a room on the ground floor while Mal writes in the attic. Sometimes they meet in the middle to write books like this one. It is Elspeth who finds the seeds the stories grow from.

    One of the world's leading children's book creators, Michael Foreman has won numerous awards, including the Kate Greenaway Medal, the Kurt Maschler Award and the Bologna Graphics Prize.
