ANGELA MCALLISTER is an award-winning British author of over 70 books for children and teens. She has collaborated with many illustrators, including Christopher Corr in the companion collection A Year Full of Stories.

Nomadic illustrator AITCH originally hails from Romania but prefers not to put down roots in any one place; new scenery inspires and invigorates her tactile, folksy illustrations, and a constant string of exhibitions in cities across the continent pushes her technique further. Her dreamy characters hide amongst William Morris-esque gardens and bring to mind a bright and bold reincarnation of Victorian melancholy while still retaining a strong sense of her Romanian heritage.
