'I love my mummy very much. She's great to cuddle, soft to touch.'

A wonderfully simple and life-affirming text from the brilliant and award-winning Giles Andreae. Beautifully illustrated by Emma Dodd - children will love her accessible, bold and bright pictures. This is a book to be read and shared time and time again.

Synopsis

I Love My Mummy by Giles Andreae, Emma Dodd

About the Author

Giles Andreae, Emma Dodd

Giles (pictured) lives with his wife and three children in Notting Hill and Wiltshire. He writes highly successful children's books. The first, Rumble in the Jungle, was an instant success and has sold more than half a million copies. The more recent Dinosaurs Galore continues the rhyming fun and vibrant illustrations that established Giraffes Can't Dance as a perennial children's favourite. The Lion Who Wanted to Love won the Federation of Children's Book Group's Best Picture Book Award 1998. Giles more recent and equally enchanting titles are There's a House Inside My Mummy, Heaven's Having You, K is For Kissing A Cool Kangeroo and The Magic Donkey Ride. Giles's children's books have, to date, sold more than 1.5 million copies, making him one of the most successful children's authors working today.
Giles Andreae is also the creator of Purple Ronnie, Britain's favourite stickman. This phenomenally successful cartoon character has made Giles the country's top-selling poet and an icon of contemporary popular culture.

Emma studied Graphic Design and Illustration at Saint Martin's College, London. Upon leaving she worked in advertising in London (clients included BMW) and Los Angeles (working for Pentagram New York and Weight Watchers).

She has also worked in animation and editorial - clients still include The Guardian newspaper. Emma is very much an outdoor person - she loves light and space and spends a lot of time sketching and drawing as well as walking Bart, her dog.

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

Shannon-Louise Masters – age 15

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

We love Lovereading4kids because they put books in front of us we wouldn’t otherwise have read. They make us more adventurous readers!

Emily Jacques

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

Alexander Boxall – age 11

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
