Carolina Rabei

  • 5 stars across 12 books
    Carolina Rabei has loved drawing since she was very small. She studied Fine Art, attaining a BA in Graphic Design in Moldova and then Children's Book Illustration at the Cambridge School of Art. Carolina's stunning first picture book illustrating Walter de la Mare's poem, Snow, was published to much critical acclaim and nominated for the esteemed Kate Greenaway Medal. Carolina went on to complete the Walter de la Mare series by creating three more gorgeous picture books: The Ride-by-Nights, Summer Evening and Silver. She also authored and illustrated Crunch! which was shortlisted for the Read It Again competition and has been translated into five languages.
