About the Author

Fiona Dillon has a pet. It's not a cat. It's not a dog. It's a goose. A gander to be exact. He follows her everywhere. He even eats out of her hand! Fiona has a garden just like the one at Tumbledown Cottage. Collecting eggs in the garden is her favourite thing to do. Her second most favourite thing is to sit in the strawberry patch and eat the strawberries. She writes books for grown-ups too at www.fionadillon.com but what she really loves is writing about Freddy Buttons and his animal friends at www.freddybuttons.com.
