Cover for 'Mo's Best Friend' by Bridget Marzo

Bridget Marzo

Bridget is a bilingual award-winning illustrator and author of over two dozen picture books published in many countries.  Her new picture book,  MO’s BEST FRIEND, A STONE-AGE STORY (Otter Barry Books 2024)  is a fictional story with some inspiring Stone-Age facts, in which little Mo overcomes her fear and her family’s and introduces a first dog into our human family.  YOU, ME and OUR WHOLE WIDE WORLD (Walker Books UK 2022) explores all that we many different humans share in common, including growing.

She uses a variety of books including Tiz & Ott’s Big Draw (Tate UK) to inspire children to empathise with the characters they draw to create stories.  She also runs colour mixing and painting workshops inspired by her art school teaching.   Bridget believes in the power of pens, pencils, and paints – and picture books – to open our minds and share all that we have in common.
