A fabulously funny adventure story from a winning picture book team!
Julia Donaldson, the 2011-13 Waterstones Children's Laureate, is the outrageously talented, prize-winning author of the world's most-loved picture books, most notably Room on the Broom, What The Ladybird Heard and The Gruffalo, which has sold over 5 million copies worldwide. Julia also writes fiction as well as poems, plays and songs - and her brilliant live children's shows are always in demand. She and her husband Malcolm divide their time between Edinburgh and West Sussex. David Roberts is an award-winning illustrator with an international following. Born in Liverpool, he has a degree in fashion design, and has worked as a milliner and fashion illustrator. But he always felt his true calling was in children's book illustration and now pursues that dream from his flat in London. David illustrates fiction, poetry, and picture books, and in 2006 won the Nestle Children's Book Prize Gold Award for his line drawings in Mouse Noses on Toast (Faber & Faber).
