Katie Saunders knew she wanted to be an illustrator when she had a picture published in Twinkie Magazine at the age of five. Katie worked as a teacher before becoming a full-time illustrator. She enjoys working with bright colours and experimenting with textures to create cute characters that children will love. Katie's book, Touch and Explore: Little Frog, for Caterpillar Books was shortlisted for the 2012 Sheffield Children's Book Award in the Baby Book Award section. Annette was destined to work in books from a young age. As a precocious toddler she would read 'To Let' signs in the windows of office blocks and wonder why they didn't write something that looked a bit less like toilet. From there she graduated to being perpetually late for school as she had stayed awake too long reading. These days she spends her time editing and writing texts for exciting novelty books and being a bit more punctual.
