Sarah Horne

Sarah Horne grew up in Derbyshire, mainly under a snowdrift. She spent much of her childhood scampering in the nearby fields with a few goats. Then she decided to be sensible and studied Illustration at Falmouth College of Arts and gained a Masters degree at Kingston University. Now into her fourteenth year as an Illustrator, Sarah has illustrated many different projects including an advertising campaign for Kew Gardens entitled ‘Plantastic Play’ and commissions from The Guardian and The Independent newspapers.


Sarah has written and illustrated two books: TANTRUMS AND TIARAS and PAWS, CLAWS, AND FRILLY DRAWS and she is developing further ideas at present.

Sophie Margaret Catriona Seade aka Sesame has a penchant for roller skating, sophisticated terminology, and sleuthing. What this sassy brainiac needs is a mystery to solve and that's just what she gets when Cambridge University student and aspiring journalist Jenna Jenkins goes missing. With the help of her friends Gemma and Toby, and a strange-looking duck, Sesame has a good chance of cracking the case—as long as she can avoid her meddling mum and dad; her unfortunate teacher, Mr. Halitosis; and scariest of all, the perpetrators of a very serious crime!
