About the Author

Sarah Webb

Sarah Webb worked in children's bookselling for over ten years. She lives in Dun Laoghaire, Co Dublin with her partner, Ben, young son, Sam, and baby, Amy-Rose. She reviews children's books for many Irish newspapers and magazines and has written many of her own, including the popular Kids Can Cook series.

Sarah says her inspiration comes from all kinds of things - daily life, books, daydreams, films, friends, relationships, and the whole world around her. 'I'm like a sponge,' she laughs. 'I soak everything up and retain it in some strange place in my mind. I'm eternally curious - I find the smallest, everyday things fascinating.
