Gwen Millward was born in Hitchin, England, but was brought up and went to school in Wales. She studied art at the Edinburgh College of Art, where she graduated with a First in illustration and was awarded the Helen A. Rose Bequest for art. Gwen has illustrated several picture books, including The Beasties and The Bog Baby, winner of the Booktrust Early Years Award.
It’s Superhero Day at school and Milly is ready in her costume – she’s used all the tinfoil, a tea towel and her brother Joe’s pants and really looks the part. She knows that she doesn’t have any superpowers though, or has she? As the day goes on, we see Milly being a hero in all sorts of ways: she’s super kind for example when she helps William, super clever when she works out a way to help Archie, and a super friend when she works with Iqbal on his show and tell. Gwen Millward’s illustrations are very appealing and the story is full of incident and great fun to read. At the same time, it will give young readers real insight into what actually makes us super, and how powerful it is to help and work with our friends.

Find out in this new picture book, the magical sequel to the much-loved Guess What I Found in Dragon Wood.
When two little girls visit their grandparents, it seems like a brilliant idea to camp outside for the night. But then the dark comes and it doesn't seem such a good idea after all! Until a most unexpected visitor arrives - the King of Tiny Things. He is the shepherd of creepy crawlies, bugs and grubs and shows the girls that, in fact, the night is bright with magic. From the creators of The Bog Baby, winner of the Booktrust Early Years Award 2008.
