Christiane Dorion's passion for writing children's books stems from the thousands of questions she asked as a child, many of which remained unanswered: How big is the universe? When did life begin? Originally from Canada, Christiane moved to the UK to carry out a PhD in environmental education, before working for WWF-UK for eight years. In 2002, Christiane left to become an educational consultant and writer, and her award-winning books are intended to inspire children to explore the complex systems of the world we live in and help protect it. Christiane lives in Surrey. Harry Tennant is London-born, but escaped to the coves of Cornwall to study Illustration at University College Falmouth, before returning to the capital once more. He now works as a freelance illustrator, using a mixture of hand drawn and digital media to create his illustrations, and primarily produces artwork for magazines and book covers. Harry lives and works in Hackney.
