Abbie Cameron is a recent graduate of University of South Wales Trinity Saint David. The Word Bird, Animal Surprises and Into the Blue are her first book projects. Abbie was personally selected by Nicola from her classmates to illustrate the books. Nicola Davies is an award-winning author, whose many books for children include A First Book of Nature, Ice Bear, Big Blue Whale and the Silver Street Farm series. Her 2014 book The Promise was declared as one of the best picture books of the year by the New York Times. She graduated in zoology, studied whales and bats then worked in the BBC Nature History Unit. Underlying all Nicola's writing is the belief that a relationship with nature is essential to every human being, and that now, more than ever, we need to renew that relationship.
