Hilarious and merciless, this tale will have you hooting out loud. 'Bright condiments, stricken-looking frankfurters and wicked comedy will appeal to the ruthless reader' GUARDIAN

Her picture book There's a Lion in My Cornflakes won the Sainsbury's Children's Book Awards. She lives in Frome with her husband, son and daughter.
