The Author 

Maria Symeou, one of Bonneygrove Primary School's parents, lives in Hertfordshire with her two children and four laying hens. She started writing children’s stories after realising how much her captive, young audience enjoyed her storytelling.

Inspired by her children and hoping to teach them some important life-values, she began work writing the Charlotte Learning Collection.

When not writing, Maria enjoys entertaining family and friends –
any excuse to eat, drink and laugh!
