Nick Garlick is a translator and copywriter, and although he has
had a science fiction story published, this is his first children's
book. He moved to the Netherlands in 1990.
Nick Maland trained in English and drama, but rapidly changed to set design, and then to illustration for the Guardian, the Observer and the Independent before deciding to do book illustration. His first book was shortlisted for the Mother Goose Award for Best Newcomer. He is married, has two children and lives in London.
