About the Author
Frances Tosdevin has been writing picture books for several years and has books published with UCLan Publishing and Frances Lincoln Children’s Books. She is a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators, and her debut picture book, THE BEAR AND HER BOOK, won the 2022 SCBWI Crystal Kite Award for the United Kingdom and Ireland. It was also short-listed for the Stockport Children’s Book Award and was named Children’s Book of the Week by the Independent. Frances studied Archaeology/Anthropology and Classics at the University of Cambridge and later worked as a journalist in Qatar and Hertfordshire before focusing full-time on family life. She is married with two daughters and five grandchildren who keep her busy reading stories and provide her with inspiration for new ones! Frances enjoys nature, gardening, and river walks and is never happier than when wading through her local river with a small grandchild, discovering the wonders of this watery world.
About the Illustrator
Sophia O’Connor is an illustrator living on the South East coast of Cornwall. She has been painting and making for as long as she can remember. A need to work with her hands alongside a love for storytelling led her to study Illustration and animation at Kingston University, and she has been drawing away since graduating in 2012. Her illustrations are hand-drawn using mixed media such as ink, gouache, oil pastels, and more. She loves to experiment with mark-making to create rich textures and atmospheric illustrations for children’s picture books, surface design, reportage illustration, and more. She draws inspiration from many areas of life but is endlessly inspired by Cornwall’s beautiful and vast landscapes. When she’s not drawing, she can be found on nearby beaches with her canine friends.
