Otto has style. He loves beautiful clothes. But his Gran hasn’t a clue about fashion. When yet another naff jumper arrives in the post, Otto knows he has to do something.... Róisín Hahessy’s beautiful illustrations bring added woolly warmth to this charming tale from Sadhbh Devlin: a Mamó who can’t stop knitting and her stylish grandson, whose upmarket sense of fashion does not include wearing homemade jumpers. Well, not until now...
AuthorSadhbh Devlin is a writer, columnist, television presenter and researcher. She lives in Wicklow.

Illustrator:Roisin Hahessy is an Irish Illustrator currently based in Joinville, Brazil. She grew up in Ireland and she spent her childhood drawing, colouring and painting. Shortly after graduating at an animation college in Dublin, she began working in television, creating graphics and animations. In 2015 Róisín moved to Brazil, giving her more freedom and time to focus on what she really loves, and was able to develop her portfolio and illustration style. Her inspiration comes from all around; her dreams (sometimes very strange dreams!) play a big part, and also simple things that she sees in everyday life. She works mainly digitally, but when she needs a break from the screen or just time to relax, she loves to pick up a pencil and draw. This is her second picturebook with Futa Fata.
