Michelle Robinson grew up in Gloucestershire and loved making up stories and being silly. She put that to good use by getting a job as a copywriter. She wrote over 6000 radio adverts before moving on to television and the web. She soon got bored though, which is when she started writing funny stories for children and their parents to enjoy reading umpteen times. Her picture book There's a Lion in My Cornflakes won the Sainsbury's Children's Book Awards, Ten Fat Sausages won the Lollies Award, and Red Lorry, Yellow Lorry has been shortlisted for the BookTrust Storytime Prize. She lives in Canada with her husband, son and daughter.
