About the Author

Born in Portugal in 1976, MARIA ANA PEIXE DIAS received her PhD in Biology from the University of Lisbon, before migrating for a short time to Great Britain to work with BirdLife International, the world's largest nature conservation partnership. Since her early childhood, Maria has showed a particular interest in the insects and plants taking over the suburban gardens and vacant plots of her local neighbourhood.

Born in Lisbon in 1973, BERNARDO P. CARVALHO attended the College of Fine Arts of Lisbon, and later co-founded the children's publishing company, Planeta Tangerina. He has since created more than twenty books for children and won several prestigious awards for his illustrations.
