Louie Stowell - Author

Louie Stowell writes books about all kinds of things for Usborne, from fantastical stories about talking trees and enchanted castles to books about astronomy and space.

She lives – and always has lived – in London and likes to draw cartoons in her spare time. She believes that television doesn’t actually rot your brain, just bad television, and that the next Doctor Who should be a woman. She likes reading comics and thinks Asterix has the best puns of any book ever (especially the two Roman soldiers called “Sendervictorius and Appianglorius”).
