About the Author

Always the eternal daydreamer and doodler Rebecca Elliott's school project from the age of six has in it the line “When I grow up I want to be a writer and an artist”. After a brief trip into a more serious life involving gaining a degree in Philosophy followed by an insanely dull office job Rebecca returned to her childhood career plans.

Since 2002 she has written and illustrated dozens of children’s picture books including, Cub’s First Winter, Naked Trevor , The Last Tiger, Milo’s Pet Egg and Zoo Girl which was nominated for the 2012 Kate Greenaway Medal. She has also written about her own children, one of whom has severe special needs, in her books Just Because and Sometimes which have been met with accolades from former children’s laureates Jacqueline Wilson and Michael Rosen, five star reviews and much media coverage from, amongst others, The Independent and Radio 2.

Rebecca also teaches adult courses on writing and illustrating children’s books, regularly visits schools and runs workshops for children at events including the Edinburgh Literary Festival.

She lives in Suffolk with her ‘inspirations’ - her husband Matthew, a history teacher, and three children, Clementine, Toby and Benjamin and continues to spend her days doodling and daydreaming.

Meet Trevor! He's no ordinary bird. In fact, if you peel back the novelty leaves, you'll discover he's completely naked! It's a well-kept secret that all birds are actually naked, but every morning they put on their feathery clothes and go about their day. Trevor doesn't want to conform with feathered society and refuses to wear his sparrow outfit, much to the horror of his family. In a quest to find his own unique look, Trevor crashes into a pile of sticky mud and colourful flowers. He ends up looking the best he ever has, inspiring the creatures around him to shed their own boring outfits!
