PAMELA Butchart lives in Dundee with her husband, Andy, and their two awesome cats, Bear and Carlos. She teaches philosophy at secondary school, spending her days pondering such questions as “How do I know I’m not really a robot?”
Pamela gets her inspiration from her own childhood which was filled with broken metal detectors, mud pies, haunted primary schools, dinosaurs and exploding balloons filled with rice.
Pamela loves cats, Kinder eggs, funny babies, small dogs, tulips, cheese, dinosaurs and her pug pyjamas bottoms.
When Pamela grows up she’d like to open a luxury hotel for stray cats. She thinks she’d call it ‘Meowington Palace.’

Pamela is the winner of The Children’s Book Award 2016 and the Blue Peter Best Book Award 2015 and she has been shortlisted for The Laugh Out Loud Book Awards 2016.
