Rosetta Bea, Writer 🖊


Hello! I’m the writer of The Adventures of Bambu. I’ve always written a lot throughout my life, which includes poetry, stories (for bedtime and otherwise), and music! Aside from writing, I like to travel 🌎, read 📚 and go rock climbing. 💪🏻 My favourite restaurant (which you’re all dying to know) is Nando’s 😍

It’s been so wonderful being able to publish our stories and I’m so grateful for all the support we’ve had so thank you for that! 💛🥰

Maria Vocaturo, Illustrator 🎨


Hi, I’m Maria. I am Italian but I have been living in the UK for over 5 years. I do not normally live in trees, but I love nature and animals - they are my favourite subjects to draw! When I’m not drawing or painting, you will likely find me reading a book, listening to music, or cooking and baking. I also love travelling the world and discovering new places. I want to thank the Bambu Books team for believing in me and giving me the chance to bring Bambu to life with my drawings. It is a great honour and pleasure to be part of this wonderful team 💜


Rob Mackenzie, Inspiration


Hi, I’m Rob and the original Bambu. I’d been Bambu for a number of years, ever since autocorrect pushed me over on the ice... 🧐 Then two years ago, for my birthday, a surprise! 🙀 A heroic effort of a present from Rosetta Bea and Maria Vocaturo saw the birth of The Adventures of Bambu in the form of 33 stories loosely based on my life and of course, my hairstyle. My job now is to keep having adventures so the exciting stories of the world of Bambu and his woodland friends continue coming. 😅 Any suggestions for adventures are welcome! 😁


Mike Mackenzie, Finance and Voiceover 📈📊🎙


Hi, I'm Mike, and I'm the numbers guy. I can't write or illustrate like the rest of our talented team; instead my goal is beautiful spreadsheets supporting their creativity, with a handy line in voiceovers. I'm a real bookworm and read a huge amount today - I know as a kid I'd have loved the Bambu stories!
