Maria S Costa is a very talented new author/illustrator. Maria wrote and illustrated her first children's book at the age of 9 and since then her passion for writing children’s books has flourished.

Maria graduated from the MA in Children’s Books Illustration at Cambridge School of Art and her debut picture book How to Find a Friend was published in the UK by Oxford University Press, and in the US by Clarion Books.

Maria’s illustrations are inspired by patterns, textures, vintage images, books, films, people, art, travel and everyday life. Maria works on children’s books for all ages, from board books to full length chapter books.
