About Jan Dean

Jan Dean lives near Manchester, but spends as much time as possible in East Devon. She enjoys lots of messy stuff - painting, gluing, digging holes in the garden and making bread. She likes earrings and often wears an enormous pair of giraffes (or penguins) when she visits schools to perform her poetry and write with classes. She is the author of The Penguin in Lost Property.
