Boultini: A friend recommended this to me for my little boy and he absolutely loves it. This usually means a nightmare of endless readings for me, but this book is so sweet, original and beautiful to look at, for once i'm enjoying it every bit as much as he is! An absolute delight and I couldn't recommend it highly enough. Lee Mills: My 3 year absolutely loves this book, its the first book and the last book we read at bedtime together. Great artwork too.

About the Author

When I was little, an artist once told me that she had never been bored as long as she had a pencil and piece of paper. That is my sentiment exactly.

I am a writer, editor, and illustrator, with illustration work that has ranged from children's books to bespoke stationary, while writing is predominantly on lifestyle, wellbeing, and leisure. For me, illustration is about a pencil, paper, and paint - nothing very sophisticated but utterly enjoyable - total escapism.

Growing up, like so many others, my favourite books were The Just So Stories by Rudyard Kipling. In particular, The Elephant's child was a favourite bedtime feature - so it stands to reason that that remains a constant source of inspiration, although in truth I am simply never happier than when I am drawing, and with any luck that comes across.

How You Know You're a Zebra is the first children's book that I have both written and illustrated, and while I hope that it has messages of self discovery, confidence, and perhaps even a little imagination, I mostly hope that it is something that will make adults and children smile, safe in the knowledge that they too will find their stripes.
