Chantelle and Burgen Thorne

Chantelle and Burgen Thorne are internationally published illustrators with over 20 years experience in educational publishing. The two are now focussing on picture books for children because the magic of children’s books is that they’re not just for kids. Avid bookworms themselves, they take great delight in the visual storytelling of picture books, art and text working together, every word and every image adding to the reader’s experience. Both have fond memories of being read to as children and this inspires them to make their illustrations as engaging, honest and relevant to young readers as they possibly can – what a wonderful way to spend one’s working day!
