Child illustrator Phoebe Leenhouwers started illustrating A Wolf in Disguise when she was just 12 years old, at the very beginning of the Fairytale Fraud series. Phoebe designed every single page – from choosing what the characters look like, to coming up with creative ideas, to illustrating and laying out each page. Phoebe even learnt how to draw digitally to create the illustrations! Phoebe is inspiring. She inspires children by showing them that kids can do incredible things when they put their mind to it!
