About the Author

LOUISE LOCKHART is an illustrator who lives in an old English mill town. She sells her illustrations and cut outs in her online shop "The Printed Peanut."

Praise For…

"Though the text’s approach is retro, Lockhart’s whimsically stylized illustrations are on-trend, leaning heavily on pink, blue, yellow, and green." —Publisher's Weekly
