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.
To pick one of her 2023 books, The Thunk is a very funny verse adventure about Hector Voltaire - a young explorer who discovers a mythical, magical creature called THE THUNK. Illustrated by Deborah Allwright, out with Bloomsbury in July.
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.
