Kate Pankhurst 

Kate Pankhurst illustrates and writes from her studio in Leeds with her spotty dog, Olive. She loves a good story, the funnier the better, and gets her best ideas by doodling in her sketchbook; because even quick wonky drawings can spark ideas for amazing plots.

As a child, Kate spent most of her time drawing silly characters and thinking up funny things for them to do, she feels very lucky to now do this as her job.

Kate is the bestselling author and illustrator of the phenomenal Fantastically Great Women Who Changed The World, nominated for the Kate Greenaway medal 2018, and Fantastically Great Women Who Made History.
