Illustrator Dale McNevin is a native of Prince Edward Island. She started drawing seriously in 1990, and has since illustrated numerous books (including The Prince Edward Island Songbook series and the Zonta Club's Making History: PEI Women of the 20th Century). She has had sereral showings of her work around the Island. Particularly memorable was a cheeky T-shirt design featuring a red-headed, braided lass flinging a bikini top into the Island breeze.

Dale's illustrations are found in many Acorn Press titles.
