David Roberts har illustrert mange av de mest populære barnebøkene i England, og har vunnet mange priser for bøkene sine.
David Roberts har alltid likt å tegne og male, og da han ble voksen var han blitt så flink at han reiste helt til Hong Kong og fikk seg jobb som hattemaker. Men han har alltid drømt om å få illustrere barnebøker, så derfor flytta han hjem til England igjen og begynte å samarbeide med noen av landets beste forfattere. Davis elsker å tegne dyr og klær og hatter, så hva kan vel være bedre enn en bok om dyr som går i klær og hatter?
