Someone's taken Princess Alice's super-snuggly blankie and she MUST get it back!
Lucy Rowland (Author)
Lucy Rowland grew up in Cheltenham but currently lives in London, where she works as a Children's Speech and Language Therapist. With a real passion for language and lots of experience working with young children, Lucy was thrilled when she finally made the leap into picture book writing. When she's not daydreaming about story ideas, reading A. A. Milne or thinking up fun new rhymes, Lucy enjoys backpacking, baking and long walks on the beach. She is rather scared of spiders (and spider-related tricks!) but has now (bravely) done the highest bungee jump in the world!
Paula Metcalf (Illustrator)
Paula has been writing and illustrating for a very long time. Her parents still own an early original illustrated poem, the short but pithy 'Pin In Tin' (age 4). She went on to study illustration at degree and MA level at the Cambridge School of Art. She is currently a visiting lecturer on the Children's Book Illustration MA there. In 2007, Paula was the first illustrator-in-residence at the Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre in Great Missenden, Bucks.
