Author information

Giles Andreae is the author of many top selling award-winning picture books. For Orchard, these include Rumble in the Jungle, Commotion in the Ocean, and I Love My Mummy. However, it is for the international bestseller Giraffes Can't Dance that he is best known. Giles is also the creator of Purple Ronnie, Britain's favourite stickman, and of the artist/philosopher, Edward Monkton. These two ranges of greetings cards, books and merchandise have made Giles the country's top selling living poet and an icon of contemporary popular culture. Giles lives with his wife, Victoria, a children's clothes designer, and their four young children by the river in Oxfordshire. Emma was brought up in Guildford, Surrey, in a family of artists. As a child she loved the work of Peter Firmin, John Burningham and Gerald Rose and from as far back as she can remember she wanted to be an illustrator. Emma studied Graphic Design and Illustration at Central Saint Martin's School of Art and has worked in advertising, editorial and book illustration. The I Love You range has sold over 500,000 copies and I Love My Mummy won the Bookstart Early Years Award. Emma lives in Surrey with her husband and two children and their terrier cross, Buzz, who keeps her fit and provides inspiration. The family like to spend any spare time in North Cornwall, surfing and walking in all weathers.

Customer reviews

By Diana Boswarva 01 Oct 2013 5

This book is my favourite Dad/child bonding book available on the market. The narrative is universal in its appeal and the rhyme/rhythm of the words is comforting. My 6 month and 26 month old daughters love listening to my husband read this story.

This book is recommended as a gift for first time fathers and I would suggest that it is purchased in board book format for little hands.

Review quote

Flows easily with a rhyming couplet on each page, and bright, bold illustrations bringing the story to life... it will be asked for again and again. Carousel
