About the Author

Michaela Strachan is a well known TV presenter. She has been presenting since 1986 on a variety of programmes from The Wide Awake Club to The Hitman And Her, The Really Wild Show to Michaela's Wild Challenge, Elephant Diaries and Animal Families to Countryfile, Springwatch and many many more. She started off presenting children's programmes but these days is known as a wildlife presenter and has travelled all over the world filming animals and conservation projects. 'Michaela's Really Wild Adventures' is her 1st book and really has been an adventure to write! It is a book of fun and factual rhymes about her adventures whilst filming wildlife programmes. Some are funny, some are sad, some are very factual, some are quirky and some are bonkers! Michaela has a young son who loves children's books written in rhyme and she herself has always enjoyed children's rhyming books. Maybe this will be the first of many! Sarah grew up in Derbyshire, mainly under a snow drift. She spent much of her childhood scampering in the nearby fields with a few goats. Then she decided to be sensible and studied Illustration at Falmouth College of Arts, graduating in 2001. She has illustrated for many different projects including an ad campaign for Kew Gardens entitled 'Plantastic Play'. She has also undertaken commission from The Guardian and The Independent newspapers. Sarah now specialises in funny, inky illustration and words for children's fiction and picture books. Sarah likes to paint on very big canvas. She loves funny detail, colour, music, dreams and big open spaces. Sarah now works from a studio on a hill in Forest Hill, London.
