Emily Gravett has been selected as one of The Big Picture campaign's Best New Illustrators in 2008. She launched onto the children’s book scene only a short while ago but has already made a considerable name for herself with children with her stunning and clever but simple picture books. She’s an award-winner already too. Young children will love guessing what animal they are pretending to be, before shouting out the answers as the pages are turned to reveal the real creatures.

Synopsis

Monkey And Me by Emily Gravett

A cheeky little girl and her toy monkey swing irresistibly through the pages of this gorgeous playful book. Young children will love guessing what animal they are pretending to be, before shouting out the answers as the pages are turned to reveal the real creatures. Soon everyone will be waddling like a penguin, jumping like a kangaroo and hanging upside down like a bat!

About the Author

Emily Gravett

One of the World Book Day 2014 Authors.

Emily Gravett is an author/illustrator of exceptional talent. Twice winner of the Kate Greenaway Medal, her sharp wit and seemingly effortless drawing have created such brilliant picture books as Wolves, Little Mouse's Big Book of Fears, Monkey and Me and The Odd Egg. Emily lives in Brighton with her family and their two dogs, Otto and Edith.

Julia Eccleshare, the editorial expert on Lovereading4kids says, Prize-winning illustrator Emily Gravett’s distinctive illustrations are always full of wit bringing the unexpected into stories and injecting them all with delightful humour. There’s magic in Spells as a frog turns himself into a handsome prince – well, almost!, excellent advice for rabbits on how to spot the danger of wolves in Wolves, lots of useful tips on how to be braver than you feel in Little Mouse’s Big Book of Fears, a thoughtful exploration of how home often turns out to be best despite feelings of wanderlust in Meerkat Mail, a celebration of exuberant movement in Monkey and Me and a fresh and delightful look at Dogs.
