About the Author:
Tamasine Theisel was born in rural England. She had an idylic childhood exploring the countryside, wading through streams, getting muddy and making daisy chains. This upbringing has instilled a love for nature and a fascination with the smells and colours of the British countryside. Today Tamasine lives and works in Bath, a beautiful World Heritage City full of culture and artisan to inspire and explore. The surrounding rolling countryside continues to inspire and lure her out of town, but she aims to get a little less muddy! Along with writing poems, she loves to illustrate her books; communicating the untold story through colour and texture. She is a great believer that illustration inspires children and encourages them to learn, helping them connect all the pieces together and give them confidence to learn new things.
