Harriet Houdini is going for gold in the London Animalympics! Hearing that Superpetsis going to be part of an international Olympics for animals, Harriet fancies her chances at bringing home some medals. She goes into training with a world famous athlete and brings a whole new meaning to the hop-skip-and-jump of the triple jump. But not everyone wants to see Harriet win, least of all The Great Maldini, and she has to take some unconventional transport to make to the Animalympics final.

Lee Wildish became interested in illustration and art at a very young age. As soon as he graduated from the University of Nottingham he started working as a graphic designer for an advertising agency, learning the ins and outs of graphics and corporate literature. Several years later he ventured into greeting cards, where he produced illustrations and design concepts from inception through completion. Lee now loves to illustrate children's books and adds humor to his work whenever possible. He believes that there’s nothing more warming than seeing people enjoying a published book that he has illustrated. Lee now lives in Nottingham, England.
