All the illustrations for the trilogy have been done ‘in house’ by either myself or my children, in particular by my daughter Nina Holding (pictured with me above), who wants to be an artist when she grows up. I decided that what should be illustrated was any unusual or out of the ordinary object, creature or person in the story. The character of Hannah Burney is often mentioned as drawing this or that, and so I also thought that the drawings should look like they had been done by her.
