About the author (1989)

Kit Wright's father was a schoolmaster who loved reading and writing light-hearted verse. He encouraged Kit too and Kit began poetry from the age of six, continuing to do so ever since. Kit soon established himself as one of the most able poets for children around with collections such as Arthur's Father and Cat Among the Pigeons. TES said of him that "among children's writers he has perhaps the finest ear for poetry's rythms and cadences.
