About the Authors

Michelle Robinson

Michelle grew up in Gloucestershire and loved making up stories and being silly. She put that to good use by getting a job as a copywriter. She wrote over 6000 radio adverts before moving on to television and the web. She soon got bored though, which is when she started writing funny stories for children and their parents to enjoy reading umpteen times. Her picture book There's a Lion in My Cornflakes won the Sainsbury's Children's Book Awards. She lives in Frome with her husband, son and daughter.

Tor Freeman

Tor grew up in London and graduated from Kingston University with a BA in illustration. She has been working as an illustrator ever since. In 2012 she was awarded the Sendak Fellowship and spent a month in Connecticut.
