On my way to bed, I play with a tiger, a lobster and a bear – and lots of other creatures too. But why are they so familiar? In this celebration of imaginative play, a young child is surrounded and enriched by an extended and diverse family. Inclusive and playful, this is the ideal bedtime read.

Jana Novotny Hunter was born in Czechoslovakia and grew up in England. A graduate of Hornsey College of Art, she spent many years in the USA, working as a textile designer, teacher, writer and mother. Jana has written more than forty books for children, including Read my Lips, the prizewinning story exploring the communication choices of a Deaf girl.

As a conference speaker and lecturer, Jana focuses on the relationship between image and text in picture books, expertise that has led to her becoming an editor as well as a reviewer. At home with kids of all ages, Jana loves to visit schools and libraries, or to run writing workshops.

Kay is a freelance illustrator based in Chorlton, Manchester. She's made a living from art for the past 34 years.  She studied at Chesterfield College of Art and Design where she discovered her love of illustration and design. She then work as an animator in children’s television for five years before going freelance. Since then she has worked as a freelance  illustrator for children’s books. All her work is hand- drawn and painted in gouache, felt-tip pens and colored pencils in a messy way and then adjusted in photoshop. She enjoys  being in her studio every day with her cat Pablo, radio on, paintbrush in hand, coffee and biscuits at the ready and paint all day.
