This is not the first joint project for Jane Langley and Bridget Fogarty. They also ran a door-to-door potting mix business at the age of five. Fast forward 30-something years and Bridget's experience as a teacher, researcher and producer made her the ideal taskmaster to corral Jane's word-smithing abilities out of the advertising industry and into this book. Convinced of the inevitable truth that a book really IS judged by its cover, they began a long search for a designer slash illustrator who could inject the right mix of cute and cool. Oh hi Becky Ollivier, friend-of-a-friend and freelance graphic designer who also happened to have a Fine Arts degree lurking in her dark past. Several hundred hours and quite a few w i n e e v e n i n g s book meetings later, here it is. Their firstborn.
