About the Author

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. 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. When not working in her studio, Emily might be found walking the dogs, watering the tomatoes, driving the family's restored 1950s bus or speeding round the roller-derby track.

Reviews

The message is admirable and the cut-out cover enticing, but the greatest joy is in the comic expressions, hand-wrought images and witty detail. * Sunday Times *
If you haven't discovered the brilliant wit and inventiveness of award- winning Emily Gravett yet, then this superbly illustrated rhyming adventure is a great place to start... Gravett's familiar minor cast of bemused bunnies and dishevelled foxes pop up throughout and the pictures are packed with comic detail. Superb. * Daily Mail *
This beautiful book, illustrated in warm tones, is full of expressive, characterful animals and tells a charming story. Emily Gravett's place in the world of children's books is already established but in Tidy she excels herself and will delight new audiences. -- Jane Sandell * The Scotsman *
Funny, rhyming woodland story with an environmental message * The Bookseller *
Another sure-fire hit * Huffington Post *
Can you think of a better way to show children the virtues of the forests and the dangers of losing them? I can't! * The Book Bag *
A quirky rhyming woodland story about the perils of being too tidy * Irish Independent *
a jolly introduction to taking care of the environment that's filled with humour and charm * WRD *
