About the author:

Lou Peacock is lucky enough to have one of the best jobs in the world: “Head of Picture books” at Nosy Crow. She has a degree in English literature from Oxford University, and nearly twenty years’ experience in children’s publishing. She started her editorial career working on novelty books and poetry, but has focussed on picture books, her one true love, for the last 15 years. She often puts her author hat on to write picture books for Nosy Crow and has a notebook full of scribbled ideas. Lisa Sheehan (Illustrator) From an early age, Lisa Sheehan knew art and drawing would be her career in one form or another. After studying BA illustration at Kingston Uni many moons ago, Lisa fell into the world of graphic design, becoming an Art Director for the Financial Times. After having her two young daughters she rekindled her love of illustration and enrolled on the MA in Children’s Book Illustration at Cambridge School of Art. Since graduating she has illustrated a picture book by Margaret Wise Brown, which was shortlisted for the AOI awards, and her first picture book for Nosy Crow is Lionel and the Lion’s Share. Lisa currently works part-time at the FT as Senior 2D / 3D Visualiser / Designer (and all round image-maker). She gets her best ideas whilst out running and lives in Bedfordshire with her husband, two daughters and a huge daft ginger Main Coon cat called Chester.
