Suzie Allkins is the author and illustrator of the children’s picture book The Owl Who Lost Its Twoo.

She grew up in Plymouth, where she studied English Literature and Art as part of her primary teaching degree. Following this, she spent many years there as a primary and special school teacher before moving to Christchurch, Dorset in 2010.

Suzie loves to spend her time writing and illustrating children’s stories which are aimed at encouraging positive behaviour, but also allow for smiles and laughter along the way.

She can often be found on her local beach with her two ‘little people’. It can be times such as these that give rise to her next fictional creation – usually sparked by something one of her children has done or said!
