About Abie Longstaff

Abie Longstaff (Author) Abie Longstaff is the eldest of six children and grew up in Australia, Hong Kong and France. She knows all about squabbling, chaos and bossing younger sisters around. So she logically began her career as a barrister. She started writing when her children were born. Her favourite childhood books were Hating Alison Ashley, A Little Princess, Maura's Angel and The Black Stallion and she sneakily reads them again sometimes. Abie lives in North London with her family and a very pesky cocker spaniel who chews the post.Lauren Beard (Illustrator) Lauren Beard is an illustrator based in Manchester. As a young girl she always loved drawing and reading, and would write and illustrate short stories for her two younger brothers. She has been fascinated by animals, fairy tales and folklore since her childhood, when she would visit her Irish Grandma and was told to "watch out for the fairies!"

Her work is hand-drawn and coloured both digitally and by hand, using all types of media to get different textures. Lauren enjoys adding little details and modern humour to her illustrations appealing to children and adults alike.

Lauren lives with her cat, Sushi, who keeps her company when drawing.

Review quote

"Abie Longstaff has just added The Fairytale Hairdresser and Father Christmas to her spectacularly popular series about Kittie Lacey, the fairytale heroine who uses her hairdressing skills to save the day, and this time, to save Christmas!" * Sussex Life * "The text is easy to read and Lauren Beard's illustrations are full of details and humour, we spent lots of time spotting our favourite fairytale and nursery rhyme characters. I love the picture where the characters are opening their presents, there are some amusing and inspirational ideas, particularly the presents that Snow White and Goldilocks receive! My daughter likes exploring Father Christmas' house with its workshop and gift wrapping room and we love the hairstyles that Kittie gives the elves and reindeer.

The Fairytale Hairdresser and Father Christmas is a feelgood Christmas story which includes presents, stockings, trees, snow and a lovely glittery final double spread which shows all the characters iceskating. It would make a perfect Christmas present for all fairytale fans." -- Catherine Friess * Storysnug * "A lovely book, and one that I know one little person in our family is going to enjoy reading again, again and again!!!" -- Christine Frayling * We Love Books * "No little princess or prince should be without these stories, filled with fairytale fun and a surprise glitter spread." * Gransnet Feature 'Best Children's Books of 2014' *
