About the Author
Angela McAllister took a degree in Humanities at Middlesex College before becoming a children's book author. To date, she has written more than 80 books for children, including Lincoln Children's best-selling titles A Year Full of Stories and A World Full of Animal Stories.
Nomadic illustrator AITCH originally hails from Romania but prefers not to put down roots in any one place; new scenery inspires and invigorates her tactile, folky illustrations and a constant string of exhibitions in cities across the continent pushes her technique further. Her dreamy characters hide among William Morris-esque gardens and bring to mind a bright and bold reincarnation of Victorian melancholy while still retaining a strong sense of her Romanian heritage.
