About the Author

Judith Nicholls

Judith Nicholls is one of Britain's best-known poets for children, with over 50 books published and more than 500 schools visited since 1985. She has also appeared on radio, TV, and has shared a poetry training video with Michael Rosen. With three children and six grandchildren of her own, and a wide experience of teaching before becoming a poet, she has developed a real understanding of what entertains children; she brings that into her poetry so well that Junior Bookshelf described her as being "beyond question in the front rank of poets whose work is accessible to the young."
