Narinder Dhami

Her first published children's novel was Boy in Tights which developed into the three-book series, Spies in Disguise. Kate leads poetry workshops for children in conjunction with Tor Theatre and runs creative writing sessions with bookshops and schools across the UK.

Sarah Horne

Sarah Horne grew up in snowy Derbyshire, UK with some goats and a brother. She learnt to draw whilst trying to explain her reasoning for an elaborate haircut at the age of nine.

Alongside working on some very funny children’s titles, Sarah has also worked on commissions for The Guardian, The Sunday Times, Kew Gardens, Sesame Street and for IKEA as their Children’s Illustrator In Residence.

She now draws, paints, writes and giggles from underneath a pile of paper at her studio in London.

Tomislav Zlatic

Tomislav Zlatic was born in Croatia. After high school he enrolled in the Academy of Fine Arts in Zagreb. Tom started illustrating to earn some pocket money, and an occasional hobby turned into a career as an illustrator (a refreshing, useful job indeed) in 2002. Tom really likes to draw and to experiment with all sorts of media and techniques, always hoping to surprise himself. He lives in Croatia with his girlfriend and a very active cat.

Aleksei Bitskoff

Born in Estonia, Aleksei loved to draw as a child and doodled all over his school books. Although he originally intended to become a teacher, his extensive travels brought him back to art.

Aleksei studied illustration in London at LCC and Camberwell, where he received his masters degree. Influences on his quirky, humorous illustrations include Tove Jansson and Russian animators. He lives in London with his wife and son.

Jonny Lambert

Jonny Lambert grew up in Surrey and always knew he wanted to be an artist of some sort. Encouraged by his art tutor at the Reigate School of Art and Design, Jonny is now an artist of many sorts: a talented illustrator with over 300 titles to his name, designer, and paper engineer. He lives with his wife, daughter and a menagerie of animals near Horsham, West Sussex.
