About the Author
Sue Graves has been a freelance children's author for more than 17 years. She has written over two hundred books for children from pre-school up to 15+ years. She writes fiction and non-fiction, plays and poetry across the age ranges. Sue loves reading all sorts of books and is at her happiest when she has a book in her hand. She also loves painting in watercolours, playing tennis and badminton and going for long walks in the country with her husband and children. Beccy is a children's illustrator and artist, with a love of all things slightly bonkers which invariably end up in her pictures and paintings. She loves observing life and all the silly side it brings, her illustrations make her young audience smile when they're reading a book and add to the story within. Since leaving art college in Newcastle upon Tyne she has worked extensively in the world of childrens publishing, design and advertising, editorial, greetings cards and one off mural and art commissions, both here in the UK and overseas. She works mainly in pencil, acrylics, watercolour, pen and ink and digital media often combining all. She recently decorated an "Owl of Bath", Mowlberry Beak, which is currently situated in Combe Down, Bath and is working on painting a lion for The Cinnamon Cafe in Windsor, part of the Lions of Windsor trail. She is currently based in Bath with her partner, also an illustrator, 2 kids, a cat called Elsie (who has her own comic illustrated for her), and a pond full of newts and frogs.
