About the illustrator:

Jackie Morris trained as an illustrator at Bath Academy of Art, England and now lives in Pembrokeshire, Wales, with her two children. She says of her work: ‘From the age of six I wanted to be an artist. At school I would get into trouble for drawing and dreaming ― now I get paid to do both.’
