Richard Turner is a Performing Arts teacher, who supports children’s  creative voices through drama and dance. He has directed and choreographed musicals, working with students who can sing and dance way better than he can. Like most children, Richard has to be told to eat his peas, but never has to be told to eat his jellybeans or ice cream. He has been on a skateboard, a rollercoaster, an elephant and a camel. He has also been on a spaceship to the moon, but only in his dreams!

Ben Clifford was born and raised in Tasmania, Australia. He began illustrating after living in the snow with the badgers and brown hares in England. After returning home, Ben began drawing, painting, illustrating and writing books. When he’s not drawing or writing stories, running through forests, climbing mountains or kayaking in rivers, he loves to snowboard and throw snowballs at his friends.
