Mike Henson grew up in Zimbabwe, but after bobbing around the world, has ended up on a little island off the south coast of England. Mike and his wife have three children, who they suspect might be monkeys, and secret plans to steal a baby hippo (it hasn't happened yet—and probably won't—ever!). Mike loves to create—stories, pictures, songs and mess in the kitchen. As an author, illustrator, and designer his main workspace is a little caravan in the garden, crammed full of books, sketch pads, pencils, and other nonsense.
Barbara Bakos grew up on the suburb of Budapest next to a little forest. She graduated as an animation director at the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design Budapest, but she always knew that she wanted to spend more time as an illustrator. She has a big passion for creating worlds with her characters, making up how they work together within an atmosphere, what they feel, and what the story is behind them.
