About Us

About the Author:

Lindsay Myers is a lecturer in Italian and Children's Studies at the National University of Ireland, Galway. This is her first book for children and it is dedicated to her childhood pet, Mootsy, the gerbil whose awfully big bite caused her to change her perspective on many things.

About the Illustrator:

Tara Canniffe is a student at Galway Educate Together National School. She has been drawing ever since she can remember and thinks it is the best hobby in the world. She does not own a gerbil but she does have a guinea pig called Rascal, who also has very big teeth.
