A treasured classic, revisited for a new generation
Margery Winifred Williams was born in London in 1881. During her lifetime she lived in England, America and Italy and wrote numerous books for adults and children. Her most famous book, The Velveteen Rabbit or How Toys Become Real, was published in 1922. Sarah's mum always said it was a blessing how paper and a pencil could keep her quiet and out of mischief for hours. Drawing has been a life-long habit that has seen her through careers in corporate design, children's book design and now as an illustrator and illustrating is what she loves doing best. Sarah lives in Sussex with her husband Peter, her young son Mathew, and her utterly mad terrier Tess, who keeps guard as she draws.
