About the Author

Mabelle Yeo has been an editor for both online and print media, and has successfully helmed and produced a series of North American, regional and local publications. Since the age of four, Mabelle has been intrigued by how just 26 letters can be arranged to form words that tell stories, that in turn shape people's emotions, characters and choices. She is thrilled to see Scamper and his human friend come alive again through these simple snapshots. Above all, she hopes that adults and children will find this series amusing in different ways.
