For as long as she can remember, Penelope Arlon has wanted to write children's books. As the only child of a British intelligence officer, she spent most of her childhood moving around the world, living in unusual countries. Through her parents' love of literature (and the fact that she was often on her own), she was introduced to a huge number of children's books.
Now with children of her own, Penelope works from home as a freelance writer, where she has the opportunity to research and write books that continue to fascinate her. This has led her to create the Eye Know and Discover More series of books, taking her from the depths of the ocean to beyond our solar system. All this experience led to her book, The Ultimate Book of Randomly Awesome Facts (published by Scholastic Books).
Penelope Arlon's books have been translated into over 20 languages, won various awards, and sold millions of copies worldwide.
