Little owl loves playing games, trying new things and singing, but what makes little owl happiest of all? Why, when he cuddles close with his mummy and whispers, "I love you". "I know that you are happy when you wake me with a song. I know that you are happywhen you hop and skip along."
Emma was brought up in a family of artists and from as far back as she can remember she has wanted to be an illustrator. I LOVE MY MUMMY, written by Giles Andreae and illustrated by Emma, won the Booktrust Best Book For Babies award in 2010. Among Emma's favourite things in life are surfing with her kids, punctuality and Scrabble. Things she cannot abide include heights, pate and children who complain that they are bored. 'How can you ever be bored,' she says, 'when you can always draw a picture?'
