Marta Altés is the award-winning creator of My Grandpa, I am an Artist!, My New Home and The King Cat.

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.
