About the Authors
Cindy Wilde (Author) Cindy Wilde makes simple, joyful, quirky designs using bold graphic shapes and blocks of flat colour combined with areas of intricate pattern. All the elements within her work are made by hand using acrylic paint, indian ink and simple print techniques. They are then cut and reassembled to create the final piece. Sally Moret (Author) As well as her work on children's books, Sally Moret has worked as a freelance designer on graphics, fashion designs, greeting card designs, gift-wrap and printed textiles. With decades of experience, Sally's style incorporates hand-drawn artwork rendered with Adobe Illustrator to produce a more unique and complete design style. She specialises in repeat patterns, animals, birds flowers, shoes, cupcakes and all things cute.
