    Anja Boretzki is a multi-talented illustrator living in Nurnberg, Germany. Her fun, bright illustrations have been turned into greetings cards and wrapping paper, and she regularly contributes artwork to magazines. Anja illustrated her first ever picture book, ANIMAL PANTS, for Macmillan Children's Books and has illustrated a number of DOODLE ON! titles for Campbell Books. Smriti Prasadam-Halls has worked as a writer and commissioning editor for a number of major publishing houses. While at the BBC she wrote magazine stories for such favourite characters as Bob the Builder, Fireman Sam, Noddy and the Tweenies! Smriti lives in Richmond with her husband and two children. She says she's a bit rubbish at drawing but first rate at doodling!
