About the Author:

Jill Tomlinson Jill Tomlinson never intended to be a writer.  She trained as an opera singer, and then decided to have a family whilst her voice matured.  But illness intervened, and she had to find another outlet for her energies. She started on a journalism course, and by the third lesson decided she wanted to write for children.  So she did! Jill Tomlinson’s animal stories are much-loved and have been best-selling children’s books for nearly four decades.
