More About the Author

Joyce Dunbar is best known for her lively and quirky picture books stories, with their wide emotional range: she can be funny, as in EGGDAY; serious, as in THIS IS THE STAR; gentle, as in TELL ME SOMETHING HAPPY BEFORE I GO TO SLEEP; scary, as in THE MONSTER WHO ATE DARKNESS; adventurous, as in SHOE BABY; strange, as in ODDLY; poetic, as in MOONBIRD. She has, as Philippa Pearce once said in a review, 'a passionate authenticity of imagination.' She revels in the joy of language, the playfulness of words, and in seeing her work fabulously brought to life by world class illustrators.

She is the author of a series of 26 stories called MOUSE & MOLE, which one reviewer described as 'among the greats of English Literature.' These have been made into T.V animation with Alan Bennett and Richard Briers playing the parts. She considers these her most definitive works, even though not all of the stories have yet been published.

She also wrote LOVE A PICTURE BOOK, a manifesto published by Booktrust. She loves to visit schools and give talks to adults. She was a creative writing tutor on the Greek island of Skyros for 10 years, and has also been a tutor for The Arvon Foundation. She was a Royal Literary Fund Writing Fellow from 2006-2009.

My three little 'kittens' loved this book! 30 Jun. 2010

Format: Library Binding Verified Purchase
I have 3 little 5 year olds to read to at night. Their teacher had a copy of this book and everyday the girls would bring this home from the teachers library book share. The pictures and the story are adorable. I like the fact that as the girls are learning to read they can read this themselves. Young ones can listen and the older ones can start to tell the story and fill in the missing words.
