HI! I'm Sarah JacobY.

(the illustrator)

I paint, have a small dog, and bike around Philadelphia a lot.

If you want to see this kind of thing from the comfort of your living room

find me on Instagram @sjacobee.

The Important Thing About Margaret Wise Brown is now out in the world. You can nab it from your friendly indie bookseller here. I also wrote and drew a picture book called  Forever Or a Day. I hope you like it.


Write me at hello (at) thesarahjacoby (dot com).

Please send book related inquiries to Steven Malk at Writers House.
