About the Author

Elisabeth Beresford first came up with the idea for the Wombles characters one day when walking on Wimbledon Common with her two children. The Wombles have since so charmed the nation that they were chosen as the mascots for the Tidy Britain campaign. Elisabeth Beresford was awarded an MBE for her services to children's literature in 1998.
