My Baby Sister by Emma Chichester Clark

The second book about gorgeous toddler bear, Humber, and his family. From the highly-regarded creator of Blue Kangaroo and Melrose and Croc. When Humber's mum returns home from hospital, she has a little surprise for him... a baby sister, Plum! Mum's very busy taking care of the baby and she doesn't seem to have quite as much time for Humber as she used to. Can he think of a way to regain her full attention? Emma Chichester Clark's exquisite illustrations and wonderfully acute observations evoke a captivating world that both young children and their parents will instantly recognise.

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."
