Mary Murphy

  • 5 stars across 15 books
    Mary Murphy is one of the most talented young author/illustrators publishing today. Her hallmark brightly-coloured illustrations and heart-warming storylines have won her much critical acclaim, and this book marks the exciting launch of a fantastic new colourful, graphic style. Her first book I Like it When (Egmont) was published in 1997. Since then she has published a number of successful picture books, including My Puffer Train (Mammoth Irish, 1999), Caterpillar's Wish, You Smell, and Here Comes Spring (DK). She studied Illustration at the College of Marketing and Design and has worked as a freelance illustrator for design and advertising companies. She lives in Dublin with her two dogs, Sally and Jem, and plans to move to the west of Ireland at the beginning of 2001.
