Before becoming a children's author, Michelle Robinson wrote copy and devised websites for some of the world's biggest brands, including Coca-Cola, Guinness and Cadbury. She learned to write copy really quickly so she could spend time working on her funny stories instead. Michelle's first book fulfilled her dream of becoming an author like her hero, Roald Dahl. She shares his birthday and his love of chocolate, but she is much, much shorter. Michelle lives in Bristol with her husband and young son. Lauren Tobia studied Illustration at the University of the West of England. Whilst there she was Highly Commended for the Macmillan Children's Book Prize.

Before becoming an illustrator, Lauren was an intensive care nurse. She lives with her husband in Bristol with two unruly rescue Jack Russells. She has two grown-up daughters, an allotment and a serious home baking habit. She is also a regular blogger and tweeter.
