About the Author

Jan McCafferty is the talented illustrator of Pirate Small in Big Trouble for Oxford Publishing and the wonderful picture book Monsters Not Allowed (Scholastic), plus many titles for Watts. She lives with her husband Steve and two daughters in Manchester. Jacqui Bailey has spent a lot of her adult life working with children's books. She has been an editor and publisher of everything from picture books to encyclopedias, but mostly enjoys finding out amazing bits of information and then writing about them. She particularly likes writing about science, as the information so often turns out to be far stranger than fiction.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
