Adam Guillain is a performance storyteller and was the Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre Writer in Residence. Charlotte Guillain taught English to air traffic controllers and nurses before deciding a career in publishing would endanger fewer lives. They have written several books together including Supermarket Gremlins, School for Dads and the George's Amazing Adventures series. The first title in the series, Spaghetti with the Yeti, was nominated for nine awards including the Roald Dahl Funny Prize and has co-editioned in seven territories.

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.
