Cassia Thomas



Cassia was born and raised in London; with a pencil in one hand and a cup of tea in the other. She has always loved how illustrators are able to transport you into their own worlds, and so aspired to be able to do the same.

Cassia drew (a lot) and grew (not very much) and finally did a Masters in Children's Book Illustration, at Anglia Ruskin School of Art. The course helped her realise her ambition to become a visual storyteller.

Since then, she's twice been selected for the Cheltenham Illustration Awards, where her work has been exhibited alongside such artists as Shaun Tan. 'Lively Elizabeth,' by Mara Bergman, is her first book. She very much hopes it'll be the first of many!

Cassia is currently excited by; Carrot cake, Spring, Polish poster design, Stephen Fry reading anything, and the sound of her dog doing a 'human yawn.'

Lively Elizabeth!

Elizabeth is a lively little girl. She loves stomping around, making a racket and creating an awful kerfuffle. One day she does the thing that she knows she should never do: she pushes Joe Fitzhugh. Joe tumbles into Jonny, who knocks into another child, and on and on and on. Oh dear, Elizabeth! What have you done?
