ABOUT AIDAN CASSIE

  • While spending a year in Provence I finished my debut picture book, STERLING, BEST DOG EVER (July 2018 from FSG Books for Young Readers/Macmillan). My second book, LITTLE JUNIPER MAKES IT BIG will follow in 2019, and in 2020 a third as-of-yet untitled book will hit the shelves, also from FSG.

    I studied visual communication and animation at Emily Carr University of Art and Design, and later at the Edinburgh College of Art. My first tale was not a book but a wordless animated short film, SITTING NEXT TO BERNIE (screened at festivals from Newfoundland to Brazil). With a degree in Media Arts I transitioned into character and product design before returning to my first love; illustrating children’s books (an art form that involves 5,368 less drawings than a six minute film). 

    I live and work on a small island in the Salish Sea with my wee family, and giant dog.
