About the Author

New York City artist Sharon Melanie Pell was fascinated by Dr. Seuss and Walt Disney characters as a child, and began drawing prolifically at a very early age. Her first memories are of creating countless drawings of the storybook characters Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty, and eventually her favorite female superheroes. That practice of drawing 'magical girls' and their wardrobes paid off during high school when she received a fashion scholarship to attend Pratt Institute in New York, where she studied fashion design, illustration and photography.

The Crafties™ was Sharon's first children's book, based on her own adventures with her pet Ratscallions. Her primary artwork is a unique style of mixed media paintings, featuring captivating women and playful felines. Her work has been exhibited in galleries and boutiques around the world, including the showrooms and European storefronts of Tommy Hilfiger.

I was immediately enamoured by that band of resourceful, oddly shaped ratsos who couldnt keep their paws off anything tasty. There adventures were fun & whitty. And, the visual style keeps me coming back for more.
