About Sam Taplin:
Sam Taplin grew up in a beautiful valley in Yorkshire, where he dreamed of being a writer. After three years reading other people's books at university, he started writing his own for Usborne. He has been doing it ever since. When he is not writing about lonely rabbits or inquisitive bears, he likes doing card tricks, writing songs and playing long games of chess by the fire.
