When a strange little creature called Ping arrives one day at Evie's house, the two quickly become friends.

But there's no need to be sad - because a true friend is never far away.

About the Author

Chae Strathie

Chae Stratie was born 32 years ago in Kirkcaldy, Scotland, when he was very small. Since then he has grown a great deal, to the extent that nowadays he is considerably bigger than a baby.

He was educated in a secret underwater laboratory built by the Government, before escaping in a huge bubble at the age of 18. After that he embarked on a series of ill-fated schemes designed to win friends and impress girls. The most notable of these disastrous outings was his attempt to reach the South Pole on a £2.99 plastic sledge pulled by a team of cats.

Chae is a world famous horse-whisperer, weasel-murmerer and bee-shouter and is the creator of all the most successful Broadway musicals since 1982.

Chae Strathie is prone to flights of fancy.

Chae started writing silly stuff for children in his 20’s and has now amassed a sprawling collection of literally three or four picture book stories, two of which have been published by those nice people at Meadowside.

He works as a sub-editor for a national newspaper based in Dundee and lives in a quiet fishing village in Fife with his wife Corinna, daughter Eilidh, three cats, a goldfish and numerous uninvited spiders. Eilidh wants some giant land snails, but if she thinks she’s bringing them into the house she’s got another thing coming.

His greatest claim to fame is once appearing in an episode of Channel 4’s Location, Location, Location. They didn’t find him a house.

He dreams of one day going to Great Yarmouth.
