Don't Let the Bad Bugs Bite by Lindsey Gardiner


Don't Let the Bad Bugs Bite by Lindsey Gardiner

Lily and Mouse are making a special picture on Lily's computer to send to a friend. Then one day, the picture suddenly goes missing while Lily is out. Mouse has got to get it back before Lily misses it! Maybe his friends in the Letter School, Picture Playground, or in the Maths House can help? But when Cursor tells him there's a Bad Bug on the loose, Mouse knows he's got to be double quick. Particularly since the Bad Bug is hungry for important information...Suddenly, Mouse hears a grumble and catches a whiff of someone who hasn't brushed their teeth in ages - the Bad Bug! Luckily, Mouse keeps him at bay with clever language (and cheese) until he manages to rescue Lily's picture out of the recycle bin.

Lindsey was born and brought up in Dundee, Scotland. She studied Printed Textiles at the University of Dundee before going on to take an MA in Textiles at Winchester School Of Art. Much of her work was inspired by various trips abroad, especially to Amsterdam, Prague, New York and Toronto. Another inspiration was "anything with a smiley face!". Lindsey enjoyed art that was "expressive and quirky" and this can be seen in her own work.

Lindsey is busy as a part time lecturer in Printed Textiles at the University of Dundee as well as being a freelance textile designer with commissions from Habitat, Marks & Spencers and BHS among others.

More recently, Lindsey has turned her talents to writing and illustrating children's books.
