John Kane lives in Dublin and only began creating picture books a few years ago. He has a background as a creative in advertising, and spent twelve years in Australia. Every book he creates is in some way interactive, so the person listening gets to help to tell the story. His first book I Say Ooh, You Say Aah won several awards and has been translated into Spanish, Korean and Chinese. This year he has released the follow-on I Say Boo, You Say Hoo, a story about a little ghost.
