About the Author

SOPHIE GILMORE is an author and illustrator who, until recently, was based in London, but can now be found in Pisa, Italy. She studied illustration at Edinburgh College of Art and works with watercolor, gouache and pen, though a little coloring pencil and the occasional monochromatic linocuts find their way in. Much of her work stems from the curiousness of human nature and the wordless magic in a friendship between children and animals.

The conceit of a primary school-aged child who is already a seasoned medical professional provides charm from the outset, and Little Doctor's bravery comes from wisdom and kindness."--Publishers Weekly, STARRED REVIEW
