Author Information

Anna Fargher was raised in a creative hub on the Suffolk coast by an artist and a ballet teacher. She read English Literature at Goldsmiths before working in the British art world and opening her own gallery. She wrote her first book, The Umbrella Mouse, on her iPhone notepad during her daily commute on the London Underground, and it was selected as Waterstones Book of the Month. She splits her time between London and Suffolk where she is often found exploring the coastline and marshlands under the huge East Anglian skies.

Sam Usher graduated from the University of West England and his debut picture book Can You See Sassoon? was shortlisted for the Waterstones Prize and the Red House Children’s Book Award. He is particularly admired for his technical drawing skill and prowess with watercolour. Also a talented pianist, when he’s not holding a pen and wobbling at paper you’ll find him perfecting a fiendishly difficult piece of Chopin.
