David Roberts began his career in fashion illustration. He has since illustrated numerous children's books, for which he has won and been shortlisted for awards. His work ranges from Pavilion Books' fairy tale retellings, to his brilliantly funny books with Julia Donaldson such as Tyrannosaurus Drip, The Troll and The Cook and the King. He has also earned great success through his books with Andrea Beaty (Ada Twist, Scientist and others) and his self-authored title Suffragette. Lynn Roberts has worked with children's literature for many years - both as a specialist in book shops and as a writer. She is the author of modern adaptations of the classic fairytales of Sleeping Beauty, Rapunzel, Little Red and Cinderella.
