Plum and Rabbit and Me by Emma Chichester Clark


Plum and Rabbit and Me by Emma Chichester Clark

The third book about gorgeous toddler bear, Humber, and his family. From the highly-regarded creator of Blue Kangaroo and Melrose and Croc. Humber likes his little sister Plum - but not all the time, especially when she takes his things. It's not fair! he tells Mum, but when he takes matters into his own hands, Humber goes a ittle bit too far...Humber and Plum's world is immediately engaging - funny and poignant - full of joy and tantrums, but above all, completely familiar to young toddlers and their parents.


Praise for 'Melrose and Croc': 'Full of bright detail, this is a picture book young readers could well dream about as being the next best thing to entering its pages.

'Two irresistible new characters from the creator of the popular Blue Kangaroo series.'

'A heart-warming tale of how friendships begin... This book is a wonderful tactile experience, from the shimmery glittery cover... to the gentle watercolours inside, which are printed on the creamiest of papers.'

'It delights children but adults will appreciate the period evocation of the festive-season cities and the off-season seaside.'

'Incredibly touching story.'

'Gorgeous Christmassy story about friendship.'

'You don't have to get too sentimental to find something special...The light in the illustrations makes this book all the more magical.'

'A beautifully illustrated and heart-warming tale.'

'This author/illustrator goes from strength to strength... Mouth-watering illustrations, ideal text, two mightily engaging characters - altogether the star on top of the tree.'

'I Love You, Blue Kangaroo!': '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.'

!'...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.

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.

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."
