Synopsis

When Mum and Dad go away for the night, Aunt Amelia comes to look after one very cross little girl and boy. They do NOT want to be looked after and, even worse, Mum has left a list of boring instructions. But Aunt Amelia turns out to be rather different from expected . . . and a LOT more fun!

Aunt Amelia is a charmingly funny, warm and beautiful story from Rebecca Cobb, the hugely talented creator of Lunchtime.

Gorgeous illustrations accompany sweet, funny, friendly text - every child (and adult!) will wish for an aunt like Amelia!

In the media

One of my favourite books of the year from rising star Cobb who missed out on this year's Greenaway but will win it one day. Exquisite illustrations, charming and funny. I love her child's eye view.
The Bookseller’s Buyers Guide
This is one of the sweetest books I've read in years and now that it's available in paperback, is sure to become the hugely popular timeless classic it deserves to be.
Haverhill Echo
Cobb's illustrations ooze colour, noise, wit and warmth with a perfect understanding of what makes little ones laugh out loud.
