Anna Currey's warm, classic watercolour style has brought to life many enchanting picture books. Her previous work for Macmillan includes ROSIE'S HAT (978-1-4050-0007-9) also written by Julia. Anna was born in Norfolk, grew up in Ireland and now lives near Bath, with her husband.

The illustrations are endearing, with great depth and feeling: atmosphere oozes from the page * Books for Keeps * Another little miracle from Julia Donaldson * Bookseller *
