    Since graduating from Kingston College of Art in 2004 Mei Matsuoka has been much in demand as an illustrator. Her illustrations for a short story won first prize in a UNESCO sponsored competition, which she travelled to Japan to collect in 2005. Mei was on the final longlist of candidates nominated as Best New Illustrators, and is one of the UK's most exciting newcomers to children's books. Peter Bently was born in Tidworth and attended Balliol College, Oxford, where he studied for a BA Hons in Modern Languages. He has two young children and now lives in Devon. He has also written several other award-winning picture books, including A Lark in the Ark which was shortlisted for the Red House Book Award.
