About the Author

Lauren Pearson lives in North London. Before becoming an author herself, she spent nearly two decades working in book publishing in New York and London, looking after a number of famous and extremely talented authors and illustrators. She is also Mum to Ava, 9, and Johnny, 6, who were the inspiration behind the Crabtree series and who feature in the books.

More on Lauren: Her favourite colour changes every day, she is a terrible singer and she loves dogs and cats absolutely equally. She made sure to include both in the Crabtree Books.
