Author(s): Rebecca Cobb
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! A charmingly funny, warm and beautiful new story from the hugely talented creator of LUNCHTIME.
Rebecca Cobb is a rising star in children's picture books. Having collaborated on two picture storybooks with the Orange-Prize winner Helen Dunmore, Rebecca's debut solo project, the hugely accomplished and heart-breakingly beautiful MISSING MUMMY (978-0-230-74951-1), was published by Macmillan in 2011. The gorgeously funny and well-received LUNCHTIME (978-0-230-74952-8) followed and, in addition, Rebecca's stunning illustrations accompanied Julia's Donaldson's wonderfully lyrical story in THE PAPER DOLLS (978-0-230-74108-9). AUNT AMELIA is every bit as warm, engaging and original as Rebecca's existing books, and is sure to continue to establish her as a real 'one to watch'. Rebecca lives in Cornwall.
