ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Kevin grew up in the countryside in the south of England. He spent much of his childhood outdoors with his father: fishing, camping, walking, bird watching and learning about respecting Mother Nature. Kevin forged a career in construction, but his love for nature continued. Whilst teaching his children about the wildlife next to the river Ems in Brook Meadow in the 1990s, the book series Tales from Brook Meadow was born. He believes that teaching children to understand and respect animals and the environment at an early age will create a firm foundation for their journey into adulthood.
ABOUT THE ILLUSTRATOR
From the age of seven, Caroline spent her Saturday mornings sketching with her mum, a portrait artist. Caroline has been drawing ever since and decided to make it her career after she had her first child. She also started a company teaching arts and crafts to children. Over the last 11 years, Caroline has sculpted as a Lifecaster and taught herself the art of resin. Watercolours are her preferred medium – its whimsical effect is a perfect fit to her delicate style of painting. These days she predominantly paints portraits, mostly pets and wildlife, raising funds for animal rescue charities. She enjoys walking her beloved greyhounds on the beach or bodyboarding with her sons.
