About the Author

Elli Woollard writes picture books, poems and other things (most of them silly), including The Giant of Jum, Troll Stroll, and Woozy the Wizard. She lives with her four wonderful children, her meteorologist husband, and two guinea pigs in London. She does not live with a cat, although the neighbors seem to think otherwise.

Benji Davies is the author and illustrator of The Storm Whale. As a child, he was often found painting at the kitchen table . . . a habit he has continued into adulthood. He lives in London with his wife, Nina.

Praise For The Dragon and the Nibblesome Knight

"Slay storytime (if not dragons) with this good knight book." —Kirkus Reviews on The Dragon and the Nibblesome Knight

"Excellent, believable advice, with boxes—what could be better than that?" —Kirkus Reviews on Big Friends

"Sarah captures the joys and pain of a camaraderie that seems exquisitely perfect—until it isn't. . . . Davies makes the story sing from beginning to end with lovely drawings that feel sturdy and resolutely optimistic, even when Birt is at his lowest." —Publishers Weekly on Big Friends
