Basil The Brave.

The other day I receieved my advance copy of The Mumsnet Book of Animal Stories published by the amazing Walker Books. It still hasn't sunk in that my work is in such a beautiful book and published by one of the greatest publishers ever. This may be the greatest anthology in the world...i'm not biased at all!There are so many beautiful illustrations inside in such different styles and the stories are just fantastic! I'm so excited for you all to get a copy and read it to your little ones as you're all going to love it!I'm so proud of myself and everyone who worked on this book and I can't wait to meet them at the book launch in October! I know that a very young version of myself would have adored this book and especially the story I illustrated as I loved bats and witches.

The beautiful front cover,illustrated by one of my favourite illustrators Briony May Smith

Here you can see a page from the wonderful tale, Up In The Trees Is Not For Me written by Lindsay Littleson and illustrated by the very talented Faye Bradley and there...right next to those super cute monkeys is the title page of the story I illustrated. Under the super cute (if I don't mind saying so myself) Basil you can see my name! Illustrated by Emma Collins. So bloomin' proud!

The book is out on October 2nd but you can preorder it here if you're just too excited to wait!
