39 children’s books by the writer

Kaye Umansky was born in Plymouth, Devon. Her favourite books as a child were the Just William books, Alice in Wonderland, The Hobbit and The Swish of the Curtain. She went to Teacher Training College, after which she taught in London primary schools for twelve years, specialising in music and drama. In her spare time she sang and played keyboards with a semi-professional soul band. She now lives in North London and writes full-time - or as full-time as she can get in between trips to Sainsbury's and looking after her husband (Mo), daughter (Ella) and her cats.
