Michelle Robinson is an award-winning children's author who has written quite a lot of books. We stopped counting when she got to 40.
She's currently Booktrust's writer in residence.
2024 books include delightful counting book Counting Sheep with Walker, Daddy's Footsteps with Andersen and her Canadian debut - Lobster's Vacation with Nimbus.
And now she also writes novels, with three middle-grade books under her belt.
Before she started writing funny stories for children, Michelle was busy writing copy and devising websites for some of the world's biggest brands.
Right now she is either busy writing, or busy thinking about writing, or just chasing one of her children around the house.
Michelle's Goodnight Spaceman was read from space by astronaut Tim Peake. Ten Fat Sausages - a gloriously subversive rewrite of the popular song - won the Laugh-out-Loud book awards. Her anarchic There's a Lion in my Cornflakes, illustrated by Jim Field, won the Sainsbury's Children's Book Prize. And 123 Do the Dinosaur (also a song by David Gibb) won a BookTrust Storytime Prize.
Michelle always dreamed of becoming an author like her hero Roald Dahl. She shares his birthday and his love of chocolate, but she is much, much shorter.
She now lives in Nova Scotia with her family.
