REBECCA COLBY started 'writing' before she learned the alphabet, creating songs from her imagination and memorising the lyrics. Then at age 12, she won an essay contest and received a plane trip as her prize. This fuelled her dreams of becoming an author.

When not writing, Rebecca loves to dance, walk and avoid housework. She lives in North Yorkshire with her two daughters, three snails and multiple bunnies - dust bunnies, that is.

TOM FROESE is an award winning illustrator and teacher. He is passionate about making work that makes people happy.

As a commercial artist, Tom has worked for brands and businesses all over the world, including Yahoo!, Airbnb, and GQ France, but he also illustrates children's books including The Castle the King Built for Nosy Crow Books.

Originally from the Toronto area, Tom graduated from the Nova Scotia College of Art & Design in 2009. He now lives near Vancouver with his wife and daughters, and works from his home studio in the small village of Yarrow.
