Illustrator Gallery - Rosanna Montanaro-Ricchetti
Growing up, Rosanna was drawing, reading books, and practicing cartwheels on her front lawn.
Her busy mum was a hairdresser and gave her plenty of free haircuts that she didn’t like. Her dad was a music teacher, so classical and Italian music were the soundtrack of her childhood.
“Cheeky Little Pippa and the HAIR-y SALON” is her debut children’s book and features a clever, funny girl with a playful imagination.
Rosanna lives with her three daughters and husband in Toronto, in a home stocked with good chocolate chip cookies, pasta and fresh bread. Oh, those cheeky carbs.
She has a rule, inspired by Eleanor Roosevelt: do one thing each day that is cheeky.
