Writer and illustrator Sarah McIntyre burst out of Camberwell College of the Arts in the summer of 2007. She tried to run away to sea, but instead found herself toiling for long hours over a work desk to create marvellous little books and pictures. Her dream job would put her on a masted ship, climbing the rigging and keeping a fastidious illustrated log of the weird and wonderful plants and animals she encounters on her voyages. In the meantime, she happily roves along London's river bank on her bicycle and pokes around in the mud for shiny objects at low tide.
