Reviews

Debut author/illustrator Hudson delights readers with expressive, endearing characters and sweetly ridiculous situations. A charming story of friendship and acceptance, distinguished by humorous and affectionate illustrations. -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review) ...the text has a cozy, Milne-infused flavor, with lots of lively dialogue. There are also dollops of humor. -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

About the Author

Katy Hudson

Katy Hudson grew up in Middlesbrough, England, and started her illustration career as a small child drawing on freshly painted walls around the house! Her parents quickly dissuaded her from using this medium and encouraged her to draw with pencil and paper instead. The idea stuck (the pencil was updated to an inkpot and pen in some cases), and after some lovely time at art college and a degree in illustration, Katy is now a freelance illustrator based in Greenwich, London. She won the Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Best Book Award Gold in 2014 for her illustrations in the book Animal Teachers.
