Author Biography

Elizabeth Dale is a best-selling author of over twenty books, from picture books to novels for young readers. Some of them deal with issues she has faced with her own children, like Scrumpy (Andersen) about a pet dying, or Hammy (Orchard) about an adventurous hamster. Others like Don't Get Dirty Gertie (Bloomsbury), When Betsy Came To Babysit (Tamarind), The Carrot Cake Catastrophe (Gullane), Off to Market (Frances Lincoln) and Nothing Can Frighten a Bear (Nosy Crow) are either pure fun or containing a life-affirming moral. Patrick Corrigan was born on a crisp, cold December day in a small, cloudy town in Cheshire, England. With a passion for precision as a child, he grew up patiently drawing and designing arts and crafts. This took him to study ceramics at University, train as an art teacher and eventually become an Art Director at a busy design studio where he worked for nearly 10 years. Whilst there he honed his skills working on well over 500 educational and picture books for children as well as animations and branding. Now based in Hammersmith, West London where he lives with his newspaper editor wife, Dulcie, and their fat cat Forbes - Patrick uses Photoshop, Illustrator and sometimes even real art equipment to create his work. He draws best when listening to his vast collection of vinyl that he often hides from his wife.
