Genevieve Webster



Genevieve Webster co-author and illustrator of the Rastamouse book series and co-founder of Little Roots Ltd studied graphics and illustration at Norwich School of Art before coming to live and work in London in 1988. Genevieve has worked in children’s books for over 20 years art directing, developing new talent and working with established favourites such as Allan Ahlberg and Babette Cole. Alongside this, she has developed a freelance career in writing, illustrating and teaching. It was Genevieve’s passion for language and dialect and her love of the Caribbean culture that inspired her to co-create Rastamouse. The first title in the series, Rastamouse and the Crucial Plan was published to wide critical acclaim in 2003 and by 2008 a production company and CBeebies were on board. Fast-forward to January 2011 and a hit TV show was born . . . irie man!
