Marta Altés is the award-winning creator of My Grandpa, I am an Artist!, My New Home and The King Cat. She loves to tell stories and her love of illustration saw her study for a degree in Graphic Design in Barcelona. Marta moved to the UK to study for an MA in Children's Book Illustration at Cambridge School of Art (the best decision she ever made!) and graduated in 2011. Since then she has won the Read It Again! Award and the Nottingham Children's Book Award and her first book No! was shortlisted for the Waterstone's Picture Book Prize. Marta lives in London.

Last year I was asked to collaborate along Professor Lucy Raymond to create this very special book. I feel VERY honoured to be part of this project. Lucy Raymond is Professor of Medical Genetics and Neurodevelopment at the Cambridge University. Her research is in Rare Generic Diseases in Children and she wanted to create something for children and parents to share about their disease and taking part in research. Link of the Imagine ID study in biography. The whole project was co-ordinated by the lovely super Pam Smy :))) ❤
