Sophy Henn lives and works in Sussex, England. She has studied Fashion, worked as an Art Director in advertising and went on to complete an MA at University of Brighton in Illustration.

Now she writes and illustrates children’s books in her studio, with a large cup of tea by her side, and can’t quite believe her luck.

Sophy is over the moon to be the Official Illustrator for World Book Day 2015!


Where Bear?

From a major new picture book talent comes a deceptively simple and exquisitely illustrated picture book about a little boy and his bear and finding a place called home. Told with humour and warmth, this is a story to capture the heart of its reader.

Pom Pom gets the Grumps

A delightful and hilarious new character from exciting new author and illustrator talent, Sophy Henn, creator of the highly acclaimed picture book, Where Bear?.

When Pom Pom Panda wakes up in a BAD mood one morning, nothing is right. And then things go from bad to worse. A fresh and funny new take on toddler tantrums, that will strike a chord with parents and young children alike.


A great combination of practical advice and personal insight into a world I knew nothing about.
