Author(s): Nicola O'Byrne
Everyone knows that the very last story before bed is the best story of all. But the problem is, everyone wants to be in that very last story! A familiar fairy tale is turned topsy-turvy when Cinderella hijacks the story of The Three Little Pigs, then Little Red Riding Hood jumps in, adamant that her story is better because it's full of danger. And then the Big Bad Wolf turns up too! But disaster strikes! Uh-oh! What will they do? The reader is still awake and needs a story! The characters make up their own story, of course, and one with enough funniness, romance, danger AND cake (obviously) to keep everyone happy.
When Nicola O'Byrne was 5 years old her parents banned Saturday morning television, and she has been drawing ever since. Nicola grew up in Singapore and had not even heard of illustration as a career before she discovered the Illustration course at Edinburgh College of Art. Nicola has now completed a Masters in Printmaking, as well as pursuing a career in children's book illustration. She gets most of her ideas for children's books when she should be working on something else, and bases all of her characters on people she knows.
