About the Author

AMANDA WOOD began her career in illustration at the Natural History Museum, London, and went on to be the founding Editor and Publisher of Templar for more than 30 years. In her time there, she published and nurtured numerous Greenaway winners, and edited and wrote groundbreaking series such as The Ologies, which have sold over 19 million-copies worldwide. Today she writes and runs her own small press from her home in Surrey.

Mike Jolley has worked as an Art Director in children’s books for over 25 years. He also sells artwork made from found objects, under the name ‘Box 2’. It was during one of his many junk shop visits that the idea of using midcentury school information charts for Curiositree first took shape. He lives on a cliff overlooking the English Channel.
Owen Davey is an award-winning freelance illustrator living and working in the UK. His work has been published in every continent except Antarctica.
