Charlotte Voake is one of the most acclaimed contemporary children's book illustrators and has been shortlisted for the Kurt Maschler Award four times. She is the author-illustrator of picture books Ginger, Ginger Finds a Home, Hello Twins and Tweedle Dee Dee. She also illustrated the children's classic, Elsie Piddock Skips in Her Sleep by Eleanor Farjeon. About Melissa's Octopus and Other Unsuitable Pets, she says, "I always wanted an armadillo when I was little - but I don't think it would have been a very happy pet. I now have two cats, four hens, and a small parrot called Gwen... The cats are frightened of the hens and terrified of the parrot!" Charlotte lives near Woking, Surrey.
