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.

Hello everyone. apologies for being absent for a while. I'm currently recovering from a back operation, so am not upright very much at the moment, but I've made it to my computer to tell you about an auction that I'm proud to have contributed a piece of original artwork to.
All the funds raised will go to Three Peas charity, helping stranded refugee families and individuals in Greece. Open your hearts and wallets!
It starts this Friday, and has some truly fantastic work in it. Have a browse.

#baddog Edith is in trouble. This morning she decided she was bored with walking, so went home BY HERSELF (yes there were roads) On finding no-one home she evaded the neighbours capture attempts and rejoined the walk hoping I hadn't noticed her absence (I had) To top it off this afternoon she found something foxy to roll in then took herself off to bed. MY BED! #dogintrouble
