Product description

About the Author

Peta Rainford is the Isle of Wight-based writer and illustrator of the children's picture books, 'Hairy Fairy', 'Jamie and the Joke Factory', 'Isabella, Rotten Speller', 'Isabella's Adventures in Numberland' and 'The Niggle'. Peta produces colourful, funny (often rhyming) picture books, which aim to challenge, entertain and tease young readers. Her stories, often set in fantastical, imagined lands, feature witches, fairies, elves and all manner of animals - some of them made out of letters! Her writing heroes include (in no particular order) Roald Dahl, Lauren Child, Oliver Jeffers, Lewis Carroll and Julia Donaldson. She is a big fan of rhyme, jokes, puns and general silliness. Peta loves to go out and about and meet her readers, particularly through library and school visits. She thinks children are the best source of ideas for children's books! Peta grew up on the Isle of Wight so long ago she can remember dancing to the Bay City Rollers and buying crisps from the school tuck shop for 2½p. As a child she loved words, she loved painting and drawing too, but she had no idea what she wanted to do when she grew up. She studied English at York University and then worked in London as a business journalist and editor for 14 years. During this time she also studied fine art at Central St Martin's, but she still had no idea what she wanted to do when she grew up. It was only when she moved back to the Isle of Wight (now balancing the roles of freelance writer and mum), that Peta decided to write and illustrate her first book for children. It was a revelation to her: a way of combining picture making with her love of words - not to mention an outlet for her awful jokes. It may have taken more than four decades, but finally, Peta knows what she wants to do when she grows up.
