The Lovereading4Kids comment
A touching story about caring and developing an unusual friendship. When Milo finds an egg and hears it breathing, he determines to look after it. Milo and egg have some wonderful adventures together, learning skills from each other. When Milo wakes one morning and finds the egg broken he is sure he has lost his best friend. But, he is in for a surprise! Milo now has a new – if rather scary! – friend to play with. Lovely scenes of play bring this story to life. An exceptionally talented illustrator, this is rebecca’s first foray into writing and illustrating a children’s book. There are two other titles illustrated by Rebecca that have also just been published. They are Just Because and Cub’s First Winter.
Rebecca Elliott hosts a fantastic exhibition of her work!
Rebecca Elliott is hosting a fantastic exhibition of her work alongside fellow children’s illustrator Cee Biscoe in October this year. The exhibition will consist of a comfy reading corner with her books out this year (Just Because , Milo’s Pet Egg and Cub’s First Winter) along with exciting activities for children, including free colouring sheets and readings. Rebecca will also be selling prints and signed copies of her books. The exhibit runs at Gallery 24 in Sudbury, Suffolk, from Friday 22nd October to Wednesday 27th October.
Finally, if you're in or near Bury St Edmonds on Thursday 19th August why not join Rebecca Elliott in some picture book fun at 11am at Waterstone's in The Arc Shopping Centre. Your toddlers will love it. She'll also be signing copies of her picture books.
Milo's Pet Egg by Rebecca Elliott
Milo discovers a pebble and soon they become friends. Together they roll, balance, float and just mess around, until they're exhausted and go to bed. The morning brings a big surprise for Milo when he realises that there's more to the pebble than meets the eye, and then a whole new friendship evolves.
