Sue Heap is one of the UK's leading book illustrators. As a child she lived in many places including Egypt, Germany, and Singapore. She wrote and illustrated her first book when she was twelve and as a teenager wrote lots of 'rather bad' poetry. On graduating from Hull College of Art, Sue worked for an animation company and then as a designer at various children's book publishers in Oxford and London. In 1991 she became a full-time freelance illustrator. She has illustrated over thirty books, including Cowboy Baby, winner of the prestigious Smarties Prize Gold Award in 1998. Her latest picture book has been nominated for the Greenaway Medal. She lives in Oxfordshire.
