Michaël Escoffier was born in 1970. He lives in Lyon (France), where he divides his time teaching, writing, and being a dad. He has written more than 80 books for children, many of which have been translated worldwide.
Roland Garrigue is a prolific children’s book illustrator from Paris, France. He seeks inspiration from the work
of Tomi Ungerer, Colin Hawkins, and Quentin Blake. He attended art school in Strasbourg. He loves to draw
fantastic universes and surreal situations, populating his books with characters from all walks of life –
monsters, vampires, witches, pirates, aliens, children, and any other strange creatures he dreams up.
Roland loves to travel and explore and he hopes his stories can transport his readers too. His illustrations
may feature absurd scenarios and bizarre creatures, but at its heart, his work expresses truths
and experiences about the world we all live in.
