About the Author
Ben Mantle was born in Leamington Spa, England, and developed a very early interest in all things artistic and festive, even winning his local library’s coloring competition as a seven-year-old. From there he went on to study animation at the Surrey Institute of Art & Design. Ben then joined the crew of Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride and now works as an illustrator and animator from his seaside base in Brighton. He is still perennially excited about the holidays and wishes it would snow every day of the year.
