He has a degree in English literature and a compulsion for matching words that rhyme. Sigi started on limericks and moved on to rhyming couplets, then to sonnets, then to writing children's verse. In the meantime, he embarked on a career in law to alleviate the stresses of writing children's picture books. My Dead Bunny is his first book.
