Born and bred in North London, Kate Prendergast first studied design at Middlesex University. After years of working in the transport industry and raising a son and daughter, Kate’s growing interest in Illustration led to an MA degree in Childrens’ Book Illustration at Cambridge School of Art.
Dog on a Train was Kate’s debut picture book and brings together her love of observational and narrative drawing and her belief in the magical possibilities of everyday life. It was longlisted for the Klaus Flugge Prize and shortlisted for the British Book Design and Production Awards.
