Pamela Butchart

Pamela Butchart grew up in a house full of pets and was raised by who she describes as ‘bonkers' parents. She had a variety of student jobs including teaching basketball in America and providing artist liaison for a ‘really bad' ABBA tribute band.

She now teaches philosophy and lives in Dundee with her family and two cats. She started writing when her now-husband bought her a ‘How to Write for Children' book and never looked back. Her crazy, funny stories include Baby Aliens Got My Teacher and the Wigglesbottom Primary Series.

    One day Izzy and her friends are surprised to find that their teacher, Miss Jones, is actually being nice to them. This is the woman who was caught secretly smiling when Maisie Miller fell off her chair.
