About the Author
Pippa Chorley grew up in a picturesque village in England surrounded by sheep. Trained as a primary school teacher, she loves to write stories that make children giggle and think outside the box. Pippa has a passion for writing in rhyme, not only because it is great fun, but also because she knows that rhyme is an essential part of children’s reading development. This is the first of three rhyming story books written by Pippa about the adventurous little girl Sam who loves to solve problems! Pippa now lives in sunny Singapore with her husband and their very own flock.
About the Illustrator
Obsessed with wildlife from a young age, Danny Deeptown found his love of drawing through hours of copying scientific illustrations from books of animals and dinosaurs. His artistic talent later led him to study Illustration in South Wales, UK. It was here he found a love for classic book illustration and the use of pen and ink. Danny has illustrated numerous books for children and when not in his studio, he likes to spend his time adventuring and seeking out new places in nature. When working on this book, Danny was often spotted in fields sketching sheep!
