Emma Quay



Emma Quay (pronounced 'Kway') grew up in the English countryside, and has wanted to illustrate children's books for as long as she can remember. She works from a studio in her home, and sometimes feels like she barely leaves it... but her illustrative work is held in collections around the world, including the Victoria and Albert Museum, London.

Since moving to Australia in 1993, Emma has illustrated a wide range of award-winning children's picture books. Her memorable characters for Bear and Chook, Good Night, Me, Daddy's Having a Horse, Reggie and Lu, Rudie Nudie, Baby Bedtime and Not a Cloud in the Sky are favourites on many children's and library bookshelves.

Emma lives in Sydney with her Australian husband and their two daughters.

One sunny day by the pond, Chook lets himself get drawn into Bear's wild ideas ... with disastrous results! A wonderfully warm read-aloud story about the adventures of two very different friends.More info, teachers' guide and activity downloads available at www.bearandchook.com.au
