About the Author
ANNA KEMP spent her childhood sticker-swapping, playing Pac-Man and coordinating BMX displays. She was a bit of a late reader but now reads all the time in her job at Oxford University. Her first picture book was Dogs Don't Do Ballet, illustrated by Sara Ogilvie. It was followed by her first young fiction title, Fantastic Frankie and the Brain-Drain Machine. SARA OGILVIE is an illustrator and printmaker who enjoys the challenge of a wide range of subjects--from old wives tales and household appliances, to toys and carpets. The stranger the better! As a printmaker, Sarah's screen prints and lithographs have been exhibited across the U.K. and abroad, including U.S.A, Canada, Poland, Japan, Korea, and France. She has won numerous accolades for her work, including the 3X3 Magazine Professional Awards. This is Sara's second collaboration with Anna Kemp.
