Sarah McMenemy has always loved the sea. "As a child, I often visited the seaside with my granny," she recalls. "These visits were treasured occasions of wonder and excitement. I wanted to create a story evoking those feelings." Sarah McMenemy graduated from Brighton College of Art. Her signature use of torn-paper collage combined with paint and ink can be seen on everything from clothing to the London Underground. She is the author-illustrator of WAGGLE, which BOOKLIST praised as "simple and joyful." She lives in London.
Starred Review, Publishers Weekly, March 24, 2008:
"Kids may well demand to be taken to the nearest passport office after finishing this light-as-a-soufflé salute to the City of Lights."
Starred Review, Booklist, August 1, 2008:
“The brief rhymes are tightly rendered but cleverly worded, and they work perfectly in tandem with the art.”
