She has been shortlisted for all the major prizes, including the Kate Greenaway Award (twice) and the Scottish Arts Council Award, and was the Shetland Islands’ first Children’s Writer-in-Residence.

Debi published her first book in 1990 and since then has published so many successful books that she has lost count. She has written and illustrated No Matter What, The Trouble With Dragons, Stormy Weather, The Scariest Thing of All, What’s the Time, Mr Wolf?, Dragon Loves Penguin and, most recently, Alfie in the Bath and Alfie in the Garden for Bloomsbury.
