Every book illustrated by Angela Barrett is a gem! There is so much patience, effort and talent in each illustration, large or small- and there are dozens in this book. Born in Essex in 1955, she studied illustration at the Royal College of Art. She produced editorial illustrations for publications such as The Sunday Times Magazine, The Observer Magazine, House and Gardens as well as book jackets for various publishers through out the late seventies and eighties. Some of the thirty or so titles she illustrated are: "The King, the Cat and the Fiddle"(1983) by Yehudi Menuhin and Christopher Hope, "Joan Of Arc"(1999) by Josephine Poole, "The Hidden House"(1991) by Martin Waddell - winner of the 1991 W.H. Smith Illustration Award, "Can It Be True?"(1988) by Susan Hill - category winner of the 1988 Nestle Smarties Book Prize, and many more.
