The series includes lazy, sleepy, silly, and hungry.

Julia Seal was five when she decided she was either going to work in a shoe shop or draw pictures for a living. Luckily, many years later, she graduated from a university with a degree in graphic design and illustration. After working in the greeting card industry and getting covered in glitter every day, she moved onto her dream job illustrating children's books. She now lives in a small village near Bath with her husband and two children, surrounded by books and inspiration.
