Lucy Cousins is one of today's most acclaimed young
author-illustrators of children's books. "I draw by heart,"
she says. "I think of what children would like by going back to my own childlike instincts." And what instincts! More than six million copies of Maisy books have now been sold worldwide. Lucy Cousins lives in rural Hampshire, England, with her four children -- ample inspiration for Maisy's future adventures.
