Sally Gardner

Sally Gardner is an English children's writer and illustrator. She lives in London. Her award-winning book, "I, Coriander", is set in 17th-century London. It tells the story of Coriander, the unhappy daughter of a silk merchant.

Sally Gardner has severe dyslexia, and didn't learn to read until she was 14. But she did very well in art college and then in drama college, and worked as a theatre designer before turning to illustration and writing.
