Lou Carter grew up in Kent and spent most of her childhood playing music. Her work as a school teacher sparked her love of children’s picture books and funny fiction. She lives in Cambridge.
Lou's picture book There Is No Dragon in This Story (Bloomsbury) has been published in a record-breaking 19 international territories, and follow-up fairytale stories are underway.
After the success of Oscar the Hungry Unicorn and Oscar Eats Christmas (Orchard), Lou is having fun creating the further and equally hilarious adventures of Oscar.
