About the author (2005)

Lynn Huggins - Cooper loves bugs! Growing up in Sussex, England, her childhood was spent on 'small game safaris' in the garden or at the beach. When she was a teacher, Lynn's classroom was an Aladdin's cave of bug tanks, tadpole bowls, critter cages and vivariums. Now Lynn loves to bug hunt with her own children on their small farm in County Durham, England, where she gardens organically. She spends her spare time building ponds and wildlife gardens for her family and local schools, or looking after her larger pets and 'writing advisors: hens, doves, guinea pigs, six lazy cats, two silly sheepdogs; Gracie and Sweetpea the goats, Khola the pony and her foal... But Lynns favorite thing to do in the garden is to lie in the grass watching the insect world march by.
