Reviews

Praise for the Blue Kangaroo series:`Irresistible... brimming with `Aaah

.

`Blue Kangaroo is a winner.

.`Warm, funny and beautifully observed. Any family that hasn't yet discovered Blue Kangaroo has a treat in store.

`Blue Kangaroo is rapidly becoming an all-time classic children's character.

!:`Presented in clear, bright colours, this is a charming tale about affection and sharing...

`The story is told with great sensitivity and gentleness and it is a profoundly satisfying and rewarding book.

`I love you... would melt the stoniest heart. Blue Kangaroo is ousted from his place... by a procession of new toys. A tender and touching story for three to six year olds.

`The pictures are adorable and the story line is fun ... This is a perfect bed time story for your Lily, or even your Luke, I'm sure they will make this a favourite.

About the Author

Emma Chichester Clark

Emma Chichester Clark studied at the Chelsea School of Art and the Royal College of Art, where she was taught by Quentin Blake. She has worked as a freelance illustrator for various magazines including New Scientist, Cosmopolitan and The Sunday Times, for publishers and advertising agencies as well as teaching art for several years, and has also illustrated numerous book jackets.

In 1988 she won the Mother Goose Award for her first book, Listen to This!, an anthology compiled by Laura Cecil. She also won the Kate Greenaway medal in 1988. Since then, she has become internationally known, illustrating writers such as Roald Dahl, Peter Dickinson, Anne Fine and Margaret Mahy. Emma was the first winner of the newly created Grinzane Junior Award for I Love you, Blue Kangaroo.

Emma was born in London but raised in Ireland. She started drawing "just about as soon as I could hold a pencil. But I could never find enough paper and my mother wouldn't let me use her Basildon Bond. So secretly I used to tear the blank pages out of her grown-up books and draw on them and make my own little books."
