David Mackintosh has illustrated several books, but this is the first one with a cat flap for a dog in it. He travels light, always stops to admire fountains and has only ever been late for a plane once in his life, and that was just a domestic flight. He loves looking through old magazines in waiting rooms, but can't abide desiccated coconut (or glace cherries). David grew up in the subtropics and now lives in London.
