Meet Hector

Hi there! I'm Hector, and this book is about me! Oh, this really was a worrisome day. I was trying to make a cake for my Granny's birthday, but I'd run out of the most important ingredient –peanut butter! I know – how can a badger run out of peanut butter? It's our most favourite thing to eat! I was so worried about Granny being disappointed, so I just had to go out and find some more. It's a good thing my friends, Mr. Bearford, Artie and Lola, were on hand to help! 

Hello! I'm Lily, the author and illustrator of 'Hector's Perfect Cake'. I live in Cambridge, where I work as an innovation consultant. I'm also a small business owner – I've run my online store, Lily in Space, since 2016. 

My favourite animals are badgers, birds and bats, although I also love animals that don't begin with the letter B.
