Cathy MacLennan is an author/illustrator of children’s books. She lives in Berkshire and works from her studio in the garden.
Her bright, painting/illustration style is greatly influenced by her African childhood and she loves to depict animals, flora, fauna, weather and pattern, with acrylics, on coloured or textured paper.
Her writing is full of alliteration, onomatopoeia, rhythm, rhyme and repetition and is loved by children 0-10 years old.

Cathy MacLennan’s popular debut title, Chicky Chicky Chook Chook, is now available as a board book with a touch-and-feel cover. Chicky chicks, buzzy bees and kitty cats romp in sun and snuggle in the warmth, until pitter-patter, down comes the rain. A great read-aloud, sing-along book, full of fun-to-imitate animal sounds, rhythm and movement.
