About the Author

Giles Andreae, Emma Dodd

Giles (pictured) lives with his wife and three children in Notting Hill and Wiltshire. He writes highly successful children's books. The first, Rumble in the Jungle, was an instant success and has sold more than half a million copies. The more recent Dinosaurs Galore continues the rhyming fun and vibrant illustrations that established Giraffes Can't Dance as a perennial children's favourite. The Lion Who Wanted to Love won the Federation of Children's Book Group's Best Picture Book Award 1998. Giles more recent and equally enchanting titles are There's a House Inside My Mummy, Heaven's Having You, K is For Kissing A Cool Kangeroo and The Magic Donkey Ride. Giles's children's books have, to date, sold more than 1.5 million copies, making him one of the most successful children's authors working today.
Giles Andreae is also the creator of Purple Ronnie, Britain's favourite stickman. This phenomenally successful cartoon character has made Giles the country's top-selling poet and an icon of contemporary popular culture.

Emma studied Graphic Design and Illustration at Saint Martin's College, London. Upon leaving she worked in advertising in London (clients included BMW) and Los Angeles (working for Pentagram New York and Weight Watchers).

She has also worked in animation and editorial - clients still include The Guardian newspaper. Emma is very much an outdoor person - she loves light and space and spends a lot of time sketching and drawing as well as walking Bart, her dog.
