The book’s illustrator Zoe Sadler’s love of reading fairytales and her penchant for an old fashioned dip pen and ink inspire her to create quirky hand drawn illustrations. Brought up on a small Scottish Croft in rural Aberdeenshire she studied at Dundee Univiersity’s renowned Duncan of Jordanstone Collage of Art and left with a degree in Illustration. Zoe now lives and works on the picturesque and inspiring Isle of Wight with her cat Mouse and dog Wilson.
