Caroline Thaw is a talented English illustrator who initially focused on theatre. She designed many sets and costumes for various plays that made guest appearances in many countries, including Japan. With time, her love for illustration prevailed and she developed a unique poetic style. She is particularly happy when her ideas are given a material form on paper and bring joy to readers. This was also her mission in creating illustrations for the book Groznovilca v Hudi hosti (Scary Fairy in the Fearful Forest). Although this was her first illustrated book, she managed to create a wonderful fairy-tale world full of gentle imaginary details, which supplement perfectly the original story, enchanting the reader even further. Her favourite technique involves combining ink, crayons and gouache, while her motifs usually include people, animals and food.
