About the Author

One of the World Book Day 2014 Authors.    

Emily Gravett has a rare talent indeed for creating exceptional books for children. The winner of two Kate Greenaway Awards, her skill and wit are second to none as she pushes the boundaries and wrings maximum fun and detail from every page. Emily first sprang into the limelight with the ground-breaking Wolves, in 2005, which has been followed by such brilliant modern classics as Meerkat MailLittle Mouse's Big Book of Fears, Monkey and Me and The Odd Egg and the fabulous Bear and Hare series for younger readers, as well as the beautiful Tidy. Each book is unique and different from the last - and each features endearing, beautifully drawn characters that touch the heart and tickle the funny bone. Emily lives in Brighton with her family. Her next picturebook with Two Hoots, Meerkat Christmas will be publishing in October.
