Martin Waddell says of A Kitten Called Moonlight, "This story was written because a little girl called Charlotte came to stay with us. She had a story
all about herself, which she had to be told again and again. Moonlight was the kitten I found one cold night on a rock by the edge of the sea, and I put Moonlight’s story and Charlotte together to make this book."

Christian Birmingham is considered one of Britain’s finest young illustrators. He received a degree in illustration from the Exeter College of Art. His most recent book with Candlewick Press, Wombat Goes Walkabout, was short-listed for the prestigious Kate Greenaway Medal (the British equivalent of the Caldecott Medal).
