ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Nick is a multi-award-winning television producer whose credits include launching the series Supernanny, Escape to River Cottage, Nigella Bites, Food Unwrapped and Blood, Sweat, and T-Shirts. Born and raised in the Black Country, Nick grew up with a strong appreciation of the rivers, wild meadows, and rolling hills of the surrounding countryside. As a teenager, he was transfixed by the magical sight of an otter catching a fish and sunning itself on the riverbank. He didn’t see another one in the wild until decades later when rivers began to be cleaned up. He is now lucky enough to divide his time between living alongside the South Downs National Park and the wildflower meadows of the French Alps.

Becca Hall is a freelance illustrator from the Lake District, now living in Cornwall. She studied illustration in Manchester and, since graduating, she has worked on a variety of children’s books and other projects, as well as launching her own range of homewares and gifts.

As a child, her grandparents let her explore and play in their woodland in the Langdales, where she made dens from broken branches and little gardens for the hedgehogs from moss and leaves, all while watching deer and badgers rustle about.
