About the Author:

Hilary Robinson is the author of over 40 children's books including the top selling Mixed Up Fairy Tales and The Copper Tree, written to help children cope with death and loss. She is also a broadcaster and freelance BBC radio producer. Hilary was born in Devon and brought up in Nigeria and England. She started writing to help her young daughter cope with a fear of spiders and her second book Prima Spiderina, was shortlisted by the English Society for Best Picture Book. The Magical Book of Mix Ups (Spells and Smells) illustrated by Nick Sharratt was shortlisted for the Experian Big Three Award. Her books have been translated into a number of languages and are sold across the world. Hilary is related to William Wordsworth via a collateral branch of the poet's family. She lives and works in London and Yorkshire.

Shelagh McNicholas was born and grew up in Liverpool. She went on to study at Kingston University where she graduated with a BA (Hons) in Graphic Design & Illustration. Apart from a short time spent teaching life drawing, Shelagh has always worked as an illustrator as well as being a full time mum to her daughter, Molly.

'The Ballet Class' written by Adele Geras, was Shelagh's first picture book for Orchard Books. Her realistic and endearing illustrations perfectly complement the story of Tilly and her ambitions to become a top ballerina.

Shelagh is passionate about drawing and is happiest with her sketchbook and pencils. Her favourite subject is her daughter and it was her sketches of Molly as a ballerina that inspired her illustrations for 'The Ballet Class'.

Shelagh lives in Surrey with her daughter.
