Martin Waddell is one of the best-known writers of children's picture books, although, he writes all kinds of stories for children. His books used to be published under two names: Martin Waddell and Catherine Sefton, but now they are all published under the name Martin Waddell. He has lived in Newcastle, County Down, for most of his life. Philippe Dupasquier was born in Switzerland and studied art in France. His French background and training have influenced his own art form, the high quality comic strip, which is very popular on the Continent and formed the bulk of his reading as a child.
Susan Varley is a prize-winning artist who has illustrated many books for Andersen Press. Her picture book Badger's Parting Gifts is one of the most enduring of all time, winning many prizes, including the Mother Goose Award in 1985.

Martin Waddell, award-winning author of Can't You Sleep, Little Bear?, perfectly captures the magic of a day out.
