Dedicated to children's and YA authors

Lou Carter grew up in Kent and spent most of her childhood playing music.


After studying medicine for three years she took a PGCE in primary education. Her work as a school teacher sparked her love of children’s picture books and

funny fiction.


She lives in Cambridge with her husband and two children.

Lou loves to write in rhyme, and eat white chocolate mice.


Lou's debut picture book There Is No Dragon in This Story (Bloomsbury) has sold to 18 foreign territories.


Oscar the Hungry Unicorn comes later this year from Orchard, who also publish Pirate Stew.
