Andy Mitchell

Andy Mitchell has been writing children's stories about birds for some years. He began after reading one of his grandchildren a story and thought something about birds would be better.

The Owl & the Racehorse is his third book following on from the success of How the Birds Started an Orchestra and The Robin That Couldn't Sing.

Carol Patten

Carol Patten was brought up in South Ockenden, Essex, where she first found her love of outdoor pursuits and animals. She started out work as a Contract Tracer and ended up with qualifications as a draughtswoman. She has always loved drawing and over the years has produced many animal portraits for family and friends. 

When Andy Mitchell approached Carol about doing the illustrations for his future books she jumped at the chance as it is something that she had always wanted to do.
