Fran lives in Hebden Bridge, Yorkshire. Sophie Fatus is a full-time illustrator and sculptress, who studied at the prestigious Academy of Fine Art in Paris. Her brightly coloured illustrations and quirky style are world-renowned and have graced the pages of many Barefoot books including If You're Happy and You Know It!, The Real Princess and The Story Tree. Sophie lives in Florence, Italy.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
