Ian Smith spent much of his childhood drawing on walls, reading about knights and defending the sandpit from terrible dragons, (who just happened to look a lot like his sisters). When he got a bit older he moved to Bristol to study for a BA in Illustration at the University of the West of England. Before he knew it he'd turned into an illustrator (and not a knight after all).


Series consultant Nikki Gamble is the director of Just Imagine, a specialist resource and training centre for Primary English. She is Associate Consultant at the University of London, Institute of Education.
