About the Author

Jane Newberry's unique insight into very little children began as a puppeteer at children's parties, where she discovered what makes children laugh. For over 25 years Jane taught Early Years Music to various groups. She wrote and illustrated three song books, A Sackful of Songs, A Sackful of Christmas and Hey, What's in the Sack? before moving on to gather the many play-rhymes used in groups over the years. Married to Pat and living in Cornwall, Jane has four children and two grandchildren. She is currently writing grown-up poetry but always finds time to work with children and parents at Rhyme-Time sessions in the local community library. Carolina Rabei gained a BA in Graphic Design in Moldova and a distinction in Children's Book Illustration at the Cambridge School of Art. Her artwork is a unique mix of traditional and digital techniques. Her first picture book, Snow (Faber), was published to critical acclaim and was nominated for the Kate Greenaway Medal. Carolina is the illustrator of Binky's Time to Fly (Otter-Barry Books, 2019). She lives in Cambridge.
