Sam Taplin grew up in a beautiful valley in Yorkshire, where he dreamed of being a writer, and after three years reading other people's books at university he started writing his own for Usborne. He's been doing it ever since. When he's not writing about lonely rabbits or inquisitive bears, he likes doing card tricks, writing songs and playing long games of chess by the fire.
Sam Taplin's narrative combines perfectly with bold, colourful illustrations by Federica Iossa while Anthony Marks provides the woodland sounds for the perfect interactive introduction to the captivating world of animals and nature. * Lancashire Evening Post *
