Who Illustrated The Little Red Elf

illustrator
Rosalinde Bonnet

As a child, Rosalinde could not decide whether she wanted to be a wildlife biologist, a writer or an illustrator. But, because she spent most of her time doodling (even all over her notebooks during class!) or creating plays and sets for her puppets, she finally decided to study art after high school.

She went first to the Versailles School of Fine Arts (2 years), then to the Académie Charpentier in Paris (1 year), and lastly she joined the École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs (4 years).

Since then, Rosalinde has written and/or illustrated numerous books like Daddy Honk Honk!, Poppy’s Best Babies, Poppy’s Best Paper, Ella and Penguin series, and Zip! Zoom! On a Broom.

When she isn’t working or reading in her studio near Paris, Rosalinde likes hiking in wild places, taking photos, and making vegan pastries.
