About the Author

Before she started writing funny stories for children, Michelle Robinson wrote copy and devised websites for some of the world's biggest brands. She always dreamed of becoming an author like her hero, Roald Dahl. She shares his birthday and his love of chocolate, but she is much, much shorter. Michelle lives in Bristol with her husband and young son.
