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 Mail, Little Mouse's Big Book of Fears, Monkey and Me, Again! 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.

Emily Gravett shared Draw for your mind's post.
Wolf had some brilliant letters from a whole group of year 3 and 4 rabbits from Wiggonby School in Cumbria, with some extremely persuasive arguments why Wolf shouldn't eat them. I'm not sure they should have put their address on their letters though . . .
