A going-to-the-hospital book in which Toby and Clemmie never let illness and disability get in the way of fun. Toby and Clemmie first appeared in the award-winning Just Because, in which Toby paints us a picture of his super big sister and all the things they do together - just because.

Synopsis

Sometimes by Rebecca Elliott

Toby loves his big sister Clemmie. She always looks after him and he looks after her - even when her disability means she has to go to hospital again. They still find ways to have fun together - and their story will help encourage children facing a similar situation.

About the Author

Rebecca Elliott

Always the eternal daydreamer and doodler Rebecca Elliott's school project from the age of six has in it the line “When I grow up I want to be a writer and an artist”. After a brief trip into a more serious life involving gaining a degree in Philosophy followed by an insanely dull office job Rebecca returned to her childhood career plans.

Since 2002 she has written and illustrated dozens of children’s picture books including, Cub’s First Winter, Naked Trevor , The Last Tiger, Milo’s Pet Egg and Zoo Girl which was nominated for the 2012 Kate Greenaway Medal. She has also written about her own children, one of whom has severe special needs, in her books Just Because and Sometimes which have been met with accolades from former children’s laureates Jacqueline Wilson and Michael Rosen, five star reviews and much media coverage from, amongst others, The Independent and Radio 2.

Rebecca also teaches adult courses on writing and illustrating children’s books, regularly visits schools and runs workshops for children at events including the Edinburgh Literary Festival.

She lives in Suffolk with her ‘inspirations’ - her husband Matthew, a history teacher, and three children, Clementine, Toby and Benjamin and continues to spend her days doodling and daydreaming.
