Ruth Quayle - Author

Ruth Quayle (Author) Ruth Quayle used to work as a journalist and copywriter, and was inspired to write books for children by the funny things her own kids said. Ruth lives in London with her family and when she's not writing, you'll find her stepping on bits of lego, burning fish fingers and trying to convince the children that there really isn't room for a dog. Eric Heyman (Illustrator) Eric Heyman served in the South Wales fire and rescue service for three decades before retiring to pursue a career in illustration. Completely self-taught, he has been inspired since childhood by such greats as Ronald Searle, Ken Anderson, Mary Blair, Quentin Blake and Mike Mignola. When he's not drawing Vikings, pirates and trolls, you'll find him walking his beagle, Bella, and searching for dragons in the hills of his native Wales.
