Miki is a baby meerkat who lives with his Mama in a zoo. He’s happy at home with Mama and the kind keeper who cares for them, but soon he becomes curious about the wider world. Then one day Miki ventures a bit too far out into the world, and he’s not sure where he is anymore. Who do all these legs belong to? Soon the legs turn from animal legs to people legs – Miki really has gone too far! But just when Miki feels completely lost, there are the keepers familiar booted legs, and here’s the keeper to bring him home; and from his vantage point in the keeper’s arms all the legs that seemed so intimidating on the way out are revealed to have friendly, happy faces with them!

After living in Australia for a while, she returned to the UK and settled in Lancashire, where she still lives.

A lover of mountains, maps and mysterious paths, she will try anything once and loves to get her hands and clothes dirty in the name of fun and adventure.
