Ali Pye has wanted to be an illustrator since she was little, when she drew stories and stuck the pages together to make her own books. But it took her a few years and a stint as a copyeditor before she started drawing professionally in 2010. She is the illustrator of Mouse’s First Night at Moonlight School by Simon Puttock as well as other stories. This is the first book that she’s both written and illustrated. She lives in London.
