Loll Kirby has spent many years being inspired by young people, through her work as a primary school teacher and forest school leader and from spending every day with her three lovely sons. She believes that children have the very best ideas and that they're never too small to start making a difference. Loll likes kindness, dark chocolate buttons and spotting interestingly shaped clouds while out running in Leamington Spa, where she lives with her family. Loll wrote this book- as well as her first book 'Old Enough to Save the Planet'- for anyone who wants to make positive changes in the world.
Yas Imamura is an Asian American illustrator who has done work for clients like Anthropologie, Sanrio and Papyrus. She also owns a greeting card shop called Quill & Fox which has been a delightful pursuit of infusing humour and fun quips into her drawings. As a child, Yas had always been fond of doodling, and much to the dismay of her parents, on surfaces she shouldn't- like the treasured pages of children's books. Much of her work now draws inspiration from those same books she enjoyed as a kid, her art evolving into an amalgamation of both the timeless and modern. Her preferred materials are gouache and watercolour and often finds herself drawn to projects that are playful and a little offbeat.
