Meet local author and illustrator teams

Sabine Muir and Agnieszka Brozek have produced four children’s picture books and are working on their fifth one. They are stories with an educational, humorous slant for children under six, featuring bees, spiders, marine creatures, and misbehaving seagulls.

Their first book, I’m Not That Scary, was published at the end of 2019, just before the start of Covid. Josephine Drama Queen came out during the pandemic when they did an outdoor launch. Their third book, The VIBs - The Very Important Bees, is aimed at helping children understand how important bees are to the environment; and how they can help by sowing and planting flowers.

Their latest one called We Don’t Want Your Rubbish, is about sea creatures dealing with plastic pollution of the ocean. A chat about writing and illustrating their stories.

Aga is an artist with a master’s degree in fine art from the Academy of Fine Arts in Gdansk.

Sabine Muir worked in libraries for 28 years, where she met Agnieszka. She is the author of three children's novels for 7-12-year-olds: Meeting Wolfie, Away with the Fairies, and The Highland Rescue, a young adult novel called Ghost Academy, and a vegetarian cookbook.

She just finished writing a novel, for adults this time, called Saints and Sinners. It's a fictionalized account of the lives of Queen Margaret and her husband Malcolm III, King of the Scots.
