Elizabeth McKay is from Dalry in Ayrshire, Scotland. She has had around 300 stories and articles published. She works part time at a day-centre for adults with learning disabilities. Having seven nieces and nephews (and now great nieces and nephews) has provided her with the perfect excuse to read lots of children's books. She is also the author of Wee Granny's Magic Bag, her first picture book for children. Maria Bogade studied Audiovisual Media at the University of Stuttgart before starting work as a 3D animation artist. She worked mainly for Studio Soi on award-winning projects like The Gruffalo. Her passion for creating her own unique images, characters and environments led her towards illustration. She lives with her partner and two children in Germany.
'Maw Broon meets Mary Poppins in this cheerful story for young readers. [...] Bogade's cartoon-like illustratons in ink and watercolour are reminiscent of the Scottish Comics tradition of the Beano and the Dandy.' --School Library Association
