Angela Brooksbank worked as a designer and art director in the children's book industry before undertaking an MA at the Cambridge School of Art, and turning her hand to her own illustration. She is the illustrator of Baby Goes to Market and B Is for Baby, both written by Atinuke. About her picture book inspiration, Angela says, "I am constantly inspired by children's energy and unique response to life and hope that my work conveys some of their playful spirit."

In picture books, too, it's all about the heroines this month. Colourful and charming, Catch That Chicken! by Atinuke, illustrated by Angela Brooksbank, features Lami, who is the best in her Nigerian village at catching chickens - even when she sprains her ankle and has to use her brains rather than her speed. * The Guardian *
