Melanie Williamson

  • 5 stars across 46 books
    Melanie's illustrations for best-selling 'Pirate Pete's Potty' have been endorsed by Radio 2's Chris Evans on his Breakfast Show. CBeebies Bedtime Stories have featured three of her picture books including 'Cactus Annie', which she wrote and illustrated. Melanie's award-winning 'Wolf's Magnificent Master Plan' was read and animated on CITV Bookaboo. She loves bold colour and humour, where possible.

    When not scribbling away in her studio, you will probably find her up a mountain.

    Eye-catchingly quirky and superbly original.
