Why on earth would he ever want to change, even when his brother tells him that they must?

About the Author

Jo Empson

Jo Empson lives in Wiltshire and recently graduated from Cambridge School of Art with a Masters in Children’s Book Illustration. Her background as a graphic designer has had a great influence on her work and she especially loves children's book's created by ex-designers, such as the great Eric Carle.

Her illustrations are inspired by nature, expressing this through texture and movement with a strong sense of shape, color and design. She loves playing with colour in the form of a visual narrative. Her abiding wish is to produce beautiful books with depth and meaning.

Children's books remain her passion. She is never happier than when she is swept away in storytelling - in all its aspects - whether it be writing, illustrating or just reading a favorite picture book (which she still does every night!).
