About The Author

Caroline Pitcher just loves writing! She is full of ideas for picture books. Her constant inspiration is the natural world, especially Greece and beautiful Derbyshire. She writes stories to read aloud, comic books and novels for children and young adults. Sometimes she visits schools and festivals, and leads workshops. At any time Caroline is writing two or three different books.

Caroline's books have won the Kathleen Fidler Award, chosen as the Independent Story of the Year, and they have been given Writers' Awards by the Arts Council and East Midlands Arts. Her books have been shortlisted for the Stockton and Portsmouth Awards, chosen as book of the month by Ottakars (remember them?), nominated for the Carnegie Medal, the Greenaway Award, the English Association 4-11 Award, and the Children's Book Award.
