About the Author

Craig Phillips is a freelance illustrator, who works for publishers all around the world from his New Zealand studio. His first picture book was Megumi and the Bear (written by Irma Gold), inspired by travels to the snowy wonderland of Northern Japan. He has also created rock art posters for bands such as Queens of the Stone Age, DJ Shadow and the Foo Fighters. Craig has always had a great love for mythology and magic, and Giants, Trolls, Witches, Beasts is the book he has always wanted to make. On the rare occasions that he is not drawing, you might find him swimming in Lake Taupo or snowboarding down the majestic mountains of New Zealand.
