Molly Oldfield is the host of 'Everything Under the Sun', a weekly podcast answering questions from children all around the world. The podcast went straight to Number 1 on the 'kids and family' Apple podcasts chart, when it launched in November 2018 and it won Bronze for 'Best Family Podcast' at the British Podcast Awards 2019. Molly is full of unusual facts and knowledge. She is known as The Original QI Elf and spent twelve years researching and writing questions for the BBC quiz show. She is also the author of several other children's books - The Secret Museum, Wonders of the World's Museums and Natural Wonders of the World. You can find out information about how to send in questions to the podcast at: www.everythingunderthesun.co.uk Richard Jones has over 20 years experience in creative arts, and has illustrated a number of books for young children including Town Mouse, Country Mouse and Feelings by Libby Walden. He lives and works in Devon. Daughter of the bestselling children's author, Jenny Nimmo, Gwen Millward was born in Hitchin, England, but was brought up and went to school in Wales. She studied art at the Edinburgh College of Art, where she graduated with a First in illustration and was awarded the Helen A. Rose Bequest for art. She won the Booktrust Early Years Award for The Bog Baby (written by Jeanne Willis). She now lives in Bristol. Laurie Stansfield has worked as a freelancer since graduating in 2010, but only recently arrived at where she feels most at home - illustrating children's picture books. She creates her art digitally using a loose line, lots of texture and a limited but punchy colour palette. Laurie lives with her husband in Bristol, and works out of an inspiring studio space which she shares with a handful of up-beat creatives. Her clients include Scriberia, Frances Lincoln, Tuesday's Child, The Met Office, cBeebies and Penguin Random House.
