Patrick Skipworth studied Classics and Linguistics in London and the Netherlands, connecting the dots between ancient cultures, their histories, and their languages. Today, Patrick is a children's book editor, but he likes to write his own books when he can. Some of his favourite topics are prehistoric bugs, super-intelligent robots and legends from far away places. His favourite word is 'mosaic.' Patrick Skipworth lives in London. Nicholas Stevenson's personality and past are as colourful as his illustrations. Now living in London, he spent years in the Seychelles 'dressing like Peter Pan most days'. Nicholas produces lively, engaging, mysterious and deeply painterly work for the publishing and music industries.
