Sophy Henn

Renowned picture book author & illustrator, Sophy Henn studied Fashion at Central Saint Martins, accidentally had a London-based career as an Art Director in advertising, then completed an MA at University of Brighton in Illustration. Now she writes and illustrates children's books in her studio, with a large cup of tea by her side, and can't quite believe her luck. Where Bear?, her first book, was nominated for both the Kate Greenaway Medal and shortlisted for the Waterstones Children's Book Prize in 2015. Pom Pom Gets the Grumps won Junior Design Awards Best Book of the Year 2015, and Sophy won Best Emerging Talent (Children's Author).  Sophy was delighted to be spokesperson for Save the Children's Read On, Get On campaign, focusing on pre-school. She was also the World Book Day Illustrator for 2015 and 2016.
