About the Author
Inspired by his own family and from his time as a primary school teacher, Paul likes to write stories that get young readers turning pages.
His published work crosses a range of genres, and includes The Twins, the Ghost and the Castle, and the Skate Monkey series.
He lives on an island in Aotearoa New Zealand, and can be found with a little book and a fountain pen in his hands, catching ideas before they disappear.
Katy Riddell is a young and imaginative illustrator with a BA Hons in Illustration and Animation from Manchester Metropolitan University. She grew up in Brighton and was obsessed with drawing from a young age. Plenty of encouragement from her parents, both artists and illustrators, led her to spend hours writing and illustrating her own stories, which her father (award winning illustrator Chris Riddell) collected throughout the years. Originally drawn to Fine Art, Katy rediscovered her love for illustrating children’s books in her gap year and decided to pursue it as a career. Since graduating, Katy has worked on a variety of commissions including children's fiction series such as Pongwiffy by Kaye Umansky (Simon & Schuster), and The International Yeti Collective by Paul Mason (Stripes). Midnight Feasting by A.F. Harrold (Bloomsbury). Special art projects include Ever After at the Oxford Story Museum and The Land of Green Ginger for Hull as it concluded its City of Culture term.
