Author Biography - Mike Unwin

Mike Unwin has migrated all over the world in search of wildlife. The author of more than 30 books on the subject for both adults and children, including the Encyclopedia of Birds (Bloomsbury) and Southern African Wildlife (Bradt), he is also a regular contributor to publications such as BBC Wildlife and RSPB Nature's Home. In 2013 Mike was voted UK Travel Writer of the Year by the British Guild of Travel Writers. Jenni Desmond graduated from a Masters Degree in Children's Book Illustration at the Cambridge School of Art (UK) with distinction and her debut 'Red Cat Blue Cat' won the Cambridgeshire Read it Again! Award in 2012. Her books have been translated into over a dozen languages since, and in 2015 Desmond was named Best Emerging Talent (Illustrator) at the Junior Design Awards (UK). In 2016 she was made a Maurice Sendak Fellow and her book 'The Polar Bear' became a 'New York Times Best Illustrated Children's Book' of the year. Her work is admired for its narrative and visual depth, being at once complex and simple. When Jenni is not in her studio, you'll find her cooking, cycling and looking for adventure.
