About the author: 

Laurie Krebs, an infant school teacher for twenty years, is drawn to projects that combine her love of children’s literature with her love of travelling to distant places. After a visit to Africa, Laurie wrote the original version of We All Went on Safari as a way of introducing the world of Tanzania to her students and grandchildren. Laurie has written many books for Barefoot, which have received the highest critical acclaim. She has four children and five grandsons, and lives in Virginia, USA with her husband, Bill. Anne Wilson has an MA in Illustration from St. Martin’s College of Art, London. She has been illustrating children’s books for several years, and this is her first project with Barefoot Books. She gains much of her inspiration and use of colour from her travels. Anne lives in Reading, England and has two children.
