Author-illustrator of The Itchy-saurus and Wide Awake Hedgehog, Rosie Wellesley has created some wonderful prickly, tickly characters. The Itchy-saurus has an itch he can’t scratch and it’s making him mad. Isaac the hedgehog doesn’t want to hibernate for winter, he wants to play. Join Rosie to discover more about her colourful creations in an insightful event touching on the difficulties of eczema and bedtime stubbornness. AGE 3-5.

Rosie Wellesley was born in London but grew up in Morocco, Pakistan and the West Country. She studied as an undergraduate at L’ecole des Beaux Arts in Aix en Provence and at the Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art in Oxford. Last year she graduated from the postgraduate diploma at Prince’s School of Drawing in London. Her other job as a medical doctor continues to inspire her writing and drawing.
