Helen Craig (born 30 August 1934) is an English children's book illustrator and writer. She is best known for creating the Angelina Ballerina series of children's books with writer Katharine Holabird.

Craig was born in London, evacuated during World War II and educated in Essex, then from 1943 at King Alfred's School in Hertfordshire, then in London. During the 1950s she worked as a portrait photographer in North London, then moved to Spain for 3 years, where she studied drawing and ceramic sculpture. Returning to the UK in 1967, she began illustrating children's books in 1970. The first book which she had both written and illustrated was ''The Mouse House ABC'', published in 1977. With co-author Sarah Hayes she created "Bear", a popular children's character who appears in ''This Is The Bear'' (1986), ''This Is The Bear and the Picnic Lunch'' (1988), and ''This Is The Bear and the Scary Night'' (1992).

Craig is the daughter of the film designer and writer Edward Carrick. Her great-grandmother was the stage actress Ellen Terry and her grandfather was theatrical scenic designer Edward Gordon Craig. One of her great grand fathers was Gaetano Meo (1850–1925) an artists model, painter and mosaicist, associated with the Pre-Raphelites. In 2018, with the assistance of mosaicist Tessa Hunkin, Craig restored the mosiac gravestone in Hampstead Cemetery which Meo created for his wife Agnes Morton and young son, under which he is also buried.
