Writer in residence Sarah McIntyre

Illustrator and writer Sarah McIntyre is easy to spot in her pointy glasses and hats.


Her books include the comic Vern and Lettuce, four books with Philip Reeve, including Pugs of the Frozen North and Jinks & O'Hare Funfair Repair, and her picture books include There's a Shark in the Bath and Dinosaur Police. She loves creating books and comics with friends and getting inspired by batting around ideas and drawings with them.


She's immensely proud of Britain's amazing illustrators and how well their pictures tell stories, and in 2015, set up the #PicturesMeanBusiness campaign calling for people to credit illustrators for their work, in reviews, when sharing artwork on social media, on book covers, and in bookselling data.
