About the Author

Elizabeth Dale is the author over twenty books, from picture books to novels for young readers. Some of them deal with issues she has faced with her own children such as a pet dying - Scrumpy (Andersen) or an over-adveturous hamster - Hammy (Orchard), others like Don't Get Dirty Gertie (Bloomsbury), When Betsy Came To Babysit (Tamarind) and The Carrot Cake Catastrophe (Gullane)are just pure fun. Wouldn't you try to get away with all kinds of craziness if your babysitter says she has never babysat before? But would you want to eat a carrot cake made by a little rabbit and her grandfather who can't see properly - because his glasses are covered in flour? ZOE WARING is a talented new illustrator. This is her first book.
