Polly P. Perkins is fifty-seven years old and lives near Blackpool.
The stories are inspired by her grandchildren, who suggested that she write a book about all the bedtime stories she told them.
She worked in the finance sector for over thirty years and in 2000 was diagnosed with MS. When her condition worsened, she had to quit work and it became quite therapeutic for her to write. She also drew the characters in her stories to go along with the tales.
The stories are based around her own fabulous garden and the huge willow tree in the middle of it.
