    Tracey Corderoy Biography
    Tracey Corderoy is an award winning children's author who has written over 45 books since 2010. She won the Hounslow Junior Book Award 2014 for Baddies Beasties and a Sprinkling of Crumbs and the Hillingdon Picture Book of the Year in 2011 for The Grunt and The Grouch. She's also been shortlisted for the People's Book Prize 2012 and the 2012 Independent Booksellers Week Award. 

    Tracey grew up in South Wales and moved to Bath when she was 18 to train to become a primary school teacher. She left teaching after having her first daughter and later returned to working in primary schools implementing literacy programmes and reintegrating children into school after long periods of illness. It was during this time she began writing stories for children.
