About the author:
Aileen Edwards is a retired microbiologist. Most of her working life was spent in her home country, Scotland with a short spell in Montreal, Canada and a brief period in Kaduna, Nigeria. She is married with two children and four grandchildren. Now that she is retired her hobbies are gardening and writing children's stories. Many of her stories are based on nature and, when her sister put her in touch with illustrator, Judy Mare, in Cape Town, South Africa, these stories took on a new dimension and came to life. Children's development and education are very important to her and she hopes her stories will engage them in this process and make reading and learning fun. Many of her stories are written in rhyme, which young children are known to enjoy but she hopes they will appeal not just to children but to their parents and grandparents as well.
