Ian Cunliffe worked at Shepperton Studios, creating special effects, and spent five years as a designer and illustrator at Penguin Books before becoming a full-time illustrator. Today, Ian works from home where he watches green parakeets fly past his studio window! He has created artwork for well-known children's books, including 'A Very Fishy Battle' by Jeremy Strong. Annette was destined to work in books from a young age. As a precocious toddler she would read 'To Let' signs in the windows of office blocks and wonder why they didn't write something that looked a bit less like toilet. From there she graduated to being perpetually late for school as she had stayed awake too long reading. These days she spends her time editing and writing texts for exciting novelty books and being a bit more punctual.
