    Katie Blackburn is the author of Where the Wild Mums Are, and Where the Wild Dads Went, two humorous homages to Maurice Sendak's Where the Wild Things Are. She has also written a further Dozy Bear adventure (Dozy Bear and The Secret of Sleep) which helps children to fall asleep, and which received rave reviews from C4's Three Day Nanny and a clinical hypnotherapist. Katie lives in London with her husband and young child.Richard Smythe graduated from an Illustration masters degree in 2010. Since then he worked for a variety of clients internationally, though ultimately he loves working on picture book texts. No matter how simple the narrative, you can always read between the lines - the only limit is your imagination!
