About Elisabeth Beresford
Elisabeth Beresford first came up with the idea for the Wombles characters when walking on Wimbledon Common with her two children. She hoped that the Wombles stories would encourage children to fight pollution and to think up ways of 'making good use of bad rubbish'. In fact, the Wombles so charmed the nation that they were chosen as the mascots for the Tidy Britain campaign. Since then they have had their own television series. Elisabeth Beresford was awarded an MBE for her services to children's literature in 1998. Nick Price is an established and popular illustrator. As well as The Wombles series, he has illustrated numerous books for children, including Pongwiffy, Clover Twig and Tumtum and Nutmeg.
