Evelyn Bookless grew up on a farm in the west of Ireland. She is a nature lover, mum, teacher and writer. Her first-time diving was at The Great Barrier Reef. It blew her mind (but thankfully she made a full recovery!) She learned to dive properly in the Atlantic Ocean one winter. She saw an octopus and was very happy even though it was very cold. Evelyn has lived in Hong Kong and Singapore for the past 10 years and loves Asia. Her favourite place to be is in the ocean, preferably somewhere warm, as sheu2019s not as tough as she used to be. She dreams about clean oceans and contented sea creatures.
About the Illustrator
Being obsessed with wildlife from a young age, Dannyu00a0found his love of drawing through hours of copying scientificu00a0illustrations from books of animals and dinosaurs. Hisu00a0artistic talent later led him to study Illustration in Southu00a0Wales, UK. It was here he found a love for classic booku00a0illustration and the use of pen and ink. Today, Danny createsu00a0art for children and adults alike. He has illustrated numerousu00a0books that mostly involve characterised animals. When not inu00a0his studio, Danny likes to spend his time adventuring andu00a0seeking out new places in nature that are relatively remote. Heu00a0is happiest in a secret place surrounded by trees with passingu00a0water.
