Of British and Catalan extraction, now living in France, Bridget's illustrations have appeared internationally, from the prize-winning best seller, Margaret Wild's Kiss, Kiss! (PW star review) to the graphic The Big Book for Little Hands (PW star review) which was shortlisted for the British Book Design Award. Her most recent US book for Harper, Philemon Sturges's How do You Make a Baby Smile? (PW star review) was a Bank Street College of Education Best Book of the Year.
