Hannah Shaw had ambitions to be a gymnast, champion roller-skater and a penguin keeper. Instead, she picked up a pen and began to draw. The characters she drew gave her so many funny ideas that she wrote them all down. Hannah Shaw is now an award-winning children’s author and illustrator. Her books include ‘Evil Weasel’, ‘Bear on a Bike’, ‘The Scruffs’ and the ‘Stan Stinky’ series. She is the illustrator of ‘The Disgusting Sandwich’ and Dick King-Smith’s ‘Sophie’ books, among others. Her unicorn pig character ‘Unipiggle’ will be starring in an exciting new series for Usborne books, the first of which ‘Unicorn Muddle’ will be published in February. Hannah lives in Gloucestershire with her messy children and very old dog.
