About Andrew Sanders

Andrew Sanders is an animation graduate who has worked as a freelance illustrator with a client list including West Ham United and Sky Television. He has worked with children of all ages on art and media projects and balances his freelance work with lecturing in Art and Design at Hull College.

In 2022, Macmillan published WHERE HAS ALL THE CAKE GONE?, a laugh-out-loud picture-book written by Andrew and illustrated by Aysha Awwad, about young Albert who tries to convince his dad that their missing cake was eaten by some very adventurous penguins. WHERE HAS ALL THE CAKE GONE? was also selected to be part of the Scottish Book Trust’s Read, Write, Count scheme in 2023.

Andrew and Aysha teamed up again for WHOSE DOG IS THIS? (Macmillan), the hilarious follow up to WHERE HAS ALL THE CAKE GONE?in which Albert blames the chaotic mess in their living room on a mysterious dog. Published in July 2023, WHOSE DOG IS THIS? was shortlisted for the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize 2024 in the Illustrated Books category, described as “a riotously funny yarn about a boy in big trouble but with an even bigger imagination”.
