Polly Dunbar

Polly Dunbar studied illustration at Brighton Art School and now lives and works in London. She is the daughter of the distinguished author Joyce Dunbar (who she worked with on “Shoe Baby”) and is the author/illustrator of “Flyaway Katie”, “Penguin” and “Dog Blue”. Some of the books she has also illustrated include, “The Dragon Test”, “Here’s a Little Poem” and “Lucy and the Firestone”. She is known for her bold use of bright flat colour and she thinks colour is a brilliant way to cheer yourself up, and whenever she’s feeling grey, she puts on her best pink frock and paints!
