    Caryl Hart is a full time children`s writer, who also runs creative workshops with local schools. She lives on the top of a windy hill in the Peak District with her guitar-playing husband, two cheeky daughters, one extremely fluffy black cat, a goldfish, four hens and an invisible dog called Paddy. She spends her spare time digging her allotment and organizing community projects, and going for long walks, especially if they end up at a cafe. Her favourite place is the local library because it`s warm and full of books. Edward Eaves is an up-and-coming young illustrator with a growing reputation and several successful children's books under his belt. Ed lives with his wife in Kent.
