Elissa is a freelance children's illustrator and author who spends her days conjuring up strange oddities from her colourful desk in London's Fleece Station Studio.
When she's not scribbling with her favourite pencil, scrawling and tapping on her computer or splashing watercolours about, she's sewing strange little monsters or gluing eyes on inanimate objects, all in the name of fun.
In this hilarious sequel to the hugely popular Barking Up the Wrong Tree, Sally Stick and her shaggy best friend Fetch discover plenty more mysteries to solve. Like, Is there a beaver loose in the town? Who is the handbag thief? And, most importantly, Why does Uncle Bob's house always smell of biscuits? Somehow, despite the accidents, misunderstandings and general confusion that dog the hapless pair wherever they go, they always get results. And they have a lot of fun along the way!
From the award-winning Philip Ardagh, and illustrator Elissa Elwick, comes the third installment in the Little Adventurers trilogy! Meet the Little Adventurers – Finnegan, Sprat, Floss and Peanut. Each week they meet in their top-secret shed HQ, ready to share their fun with you! This week it's hot, hot, hot, so their mission is to ... cool down, at the BEACH! The four friends pack their snazzy swimsuits and hop into Finnegan's daddy's car. They're going to make sand sculptures, lick ice cream cones and, best of all, see what teeny-tiny rockpool creatures they can find...
