Hello! Sarah Horne here....
I am an Author and Illustrator based in London, UK.
My latest book is The Firefly's Light published by Scholastic. It's a book about amazing inventions inspired by animals.
I have had the privilege of working on over 100 books in my career. Some of my favourites were working as the illustrator for the Charlie Changes into a Chicken series by Sam Copeland, Fizzlebert Stump series by AF Harrold, and more recently, my own titles: Panda at the Door and the sequel Panda in the Spotlight. I am also the illustrator for Matt Lucas's Very Silly Book of True or False, which is a bestselling World Book Day 2022 title.
I work with schools and libraries often. I offer workshops in storytelling, and creating fab characters and also demonstrate with some live drawings, offer tips and tricks for drawing. I’m available to universities and colleges and speak on working as a book illustrator and building a career in this. I can also offer tutorials to students as part of the day.
It’s always a lovely thing to meet and encourage the next generation to love books, stories and reading for pleasure.
