About the Author

Chloe Inkpen grew up surrounded by picture books and has a natural gift for storytelling. A love of language and art saw her swap an English Literature course for a degree in Visual Communication at Glasgow School of Art. She spent her final year specialising in children's book illustration and was awarded second place in the Macmillan Prize for illustration in 2008. Where is Binky Boo ? is her first picture book – and a stunning debut.

In this great video, you can see Chloe creating artwork for Zoe and Beans.

Mick Inkpen is one of today's most popular picture book author/illustrators and the famous creator of both Kipper and Wibbly Pig. Mick has won the Children's Book Award for "Threadbear" and the British Book Award twice, for "Penguin Small" and "Lullabyhullaballoo". Kipper won a BAFTA for Best Animated Film in 1998. It wasn't until Mick became a father that he began his career in children's books. Now father and daughter have come together for a unique and exciting picture book partnership.
