Clara Vulliamy

"Dotty Detective"

AUTHOR PROFILE:

Clara has written and illustrated numerous stories for children and babies. She also enjoys illustrating books by other authors.

She started concentrating on writing and illustrating children's books only when she had children of her own. I'm interested in the real lives of real children, trying to shed some light on the kind of things (starting school, a new baby, a lost toy…) that seem ordinary from the outside but feel huge on the inside. I do think that children are very fascinating, and much braver than us grown-ups.
