Leigh Kamraoui and Louise Whyte are the author and illustrator of A Pet Lion and The Moon in Daytime. Stimulated by their inquisitive kids and their imagination, the duo published their first moon story book, “The Moon in Daytime’ and just under a year later, their second lion book for kids, “A Pet Lion”.
As Leigh and Louise are bilingual English/French, their books are also available in French, translated perfectly with the same rhyming and rhythm style as the English books.
Leigh and Louise’s concept is to explain how the world works through fun and educational fantasy stories in rhythm and rhyme to answer questions children ask that may stump parents. In their moon book, The Moon in Daytime, kids find out why we can see the moon during the day and how to question the world around them. In their lion story book, A Pet Lion, they discover how a little girl realizes she cannot keep a wild animal as a pet and parents can learn about letting kids down gently.
Born in Scotland, Leigh holds a PhD in Zoology from the University of Aberdeen. She lives in the south of France with her family. Born in Ireland, Louise studied fine arts and computer science in London. She also lives in the south of France with her children.
