Teresa Bellon was born in Albacete, Spain. She spent a few years wandering around life, studying different things and doing drawings just for her mum and dad, until she finally accepted her fate and enrolled in a course in Illustration in Madrid. She began working for national and international clients and has since held several exhibitions. Teresa doesn't stay at home waiting for inspiration, she sets out to find it; she travels, buys illustrated books and walks a lot in Madrid. Jennifer Eckford's children's books include the bestselling Animalium and Wonder Garden, and have been published in more than twenty-five languages around the world. She studied painting at the Slade School of Fine Art in London before becoming an award-winning writer, editor and publisher of children's books.
