Kaye Umansky is that rare thing - a truly funny writer! Kaye's newest title, Dick the Delightful Duck (Scholastic, Feb 2023) illustrated by Ben Mantle, is a hilarious tale that follows Dick the usually delightful duck - but not today - today he's got out of the wrong side of bed... Kaye's next title, This Rock is Mine (Scholastic) will publish late 2023.

Simon & Schuster reissued Kaye's spellbinding Pongwiffy series in 2018. She is also the author of Naughty Naughty Monster (Templar), a fantastic picture book illustrated by Greg Abbott, and the hilarious novel, The Knights of the Drop-Leaf Table (Barrington Stoke), featuring King Artie and his annoying knights.
