About the Author

Lou Kuenzler

With a background as a theatre director and lecturer, Lou grew up on a remote sheep farm in Devon. There weren't many other children around so she used to put on plays with the chickens (absolutely true!) and tell stories to the lambs.

Lou now lives in London with her family and tells stories to them and to Willesden her dog. In this picture he is in the garden helping Lou write one of her Shrinking Violet books. Will says he came up with all the good jokes in that chapter!

Do have a read of Lou's books and see if you enjoy her funny stories … they are full of adventures, scrapes and mishaps (and a few APPALLING jokes which Willesden thinks are HILARIOUS!).
