ABOUT AIDAN CASSIE

  • AIDAN CASSIE is the author-illustrator of Sterling, Best Dog Ever, Little Juniper Makes it Big and, The Word for Friend (FSG/Macmillan). 

    Aidan got her BFA while studying visual communication and animation at Emily Carr University of Art and Design, and later at the Edinburgh College of Art. She loved making her characters come alive in her animated film, SITTING NEXT TO BERNIE, but Aidan soon returned to her first love; writing and illustrating books for children (which require 5,368 less drawings than a 6 minute film). 

    Aidan lives on a small island in the Salish Sea with her wee family, and giant dog.
