    Adam Guillain is a performance storyteller and was the Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre Writer in Residence. He is published by OUP, Pearson and Scholastic. Charlotte Gullain taught English to air traffic controllers and nurses before deciding a career in publishing would endanger fewer lives. Together they are the creators of Spaghetti with the Yeti and the George's Amazing Adventures series with Lee Wildish and Supermarket Gremlins with Chris Chatterton.

    Ada Grey studied illustration and later took a role in design. Moving back into illustration, Ada set about designing her own unique picture book style. Characterised by an energetic palate, adorable, lively characters and a delicate use of texture, Ada's work has a whimsical, boutique feel. She is the illustrator behind Shhh! Don't Wake the Royal Baby and I Love You Just the Way You Are.
