Maisie Mae

Maisie Mae is finally out and about and causing trouble!

I was super excited to be asked to illustrate this new series from Little Brown Books.

Book one in the series, No Boys Allowed! sees Maisie in fierce competition with her brothers for ownership of a new bedroom. Here are some of my favourite images from the book, and have a look in the portfolio for more!
