Sophie Anderson grew up with stories in her blood, from her mother, who is a writer, to her Prussian grandmother, whose own storytelling inspired The House with Chicken Legs.
Born in Swansea but now living in the Lake District with her family, Sophie loves walking, canoeing and daydreaming. Her dream is to create stories that help children to explore the world and fall in love with its beautiful diversity.
Her debut novel The House with Chicken Legs published in 2018 with Usborne in the UK and Scholastic in the US. Rights have also sold in China, Croatia, Germany, Iran, Italy, Korea, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Taiwan, Ukraine and Vietnam.
