Debi Gliori is well known for both her picture books and her novels for children and has been shortlisted for all the major prizes, including the Kate Greenaway Award (twice) and the Scottish Arts Council Award. Debi was the Shetland Islands' first Children's Writer-in-Residence. She published her first book in 1990 and since then has published so many successful books that she has lost count. She has written and illustrated No Matter What, The Trouble with Dragons, Stormy Weather and The Scariest Thing of All.
'Gliori's gentle story is appealing but her clever illustrations steal the show. Full of detail , allusion and charm they can be returned to time and again'* Scotsman *
