Pamela Butchart (Author) As a child, Pamela was lucky enough to grow up in a house full of pets, have a mum and dad who were bonkers, and go to The Best Most Awesome Primary School in the World. As a student, Pamela's student jobs included: fishwife, teaching basketball in America, phlebotomist, and Artist Liaison for a (really bad) Abba tribute band. Now, Pamela teaches philosophy to teenagers and spends all day pondering questions such as, 'Is time travel possible?' and 'How do I know I'm not really a robot?' The stories write themselves really... Pamela lives in Dundee with her husband, Andy and their two cats, Bear and Carlos. Carlos only has one eye and is Pamela's hero. Gemma Correll (Illustrator) Gemma was born in Suffolk in 1984. She went to school, where she spent most of her time drawing, cutting out and sticking and making her own comics, and wearing 'My Little Pony' rollerskates. Today she's still drawing, making collages and producing comics but, sadly, the rollerskates no longer fit. Gemma graduated from the Norwich school of Art and Design in 2006 with a BA (hons) degree in Graphic Design, specialising in Illustration. She now works as a freelance illustrator.
