The Leaf Thief -

Alice Hemming & Nicola Slater


Squirrel is so cross. Yesterday there were loads of beautiful leaves on his tree, but today? Today some are missing and Squirrel is convinced that someone has stolen them... there's a leaf thief on the loose!

Alice Hemming worked as a librarian, a website editor and an outreach manager for a university before she became a children's book author. Her first book was published in 2013 and since then she's never looked back, writing picture books, middle grade and the bestselling MIDNIGHT UNICORN.

Nicola Slater is well-known for her distinctive artwork. She has illustrated LEAPING LEMMINGS!, HELLO ZOO and A SKUNK IN MY BUNK as well as many, many others. Nicola lives with her family in Manchester, England.
