The something

The something

Cobb, Rebecca., author, artist

When a little boy's ball disappears down a mysterious hole in the garden, he can't stop thinking about what could be down there - a little mouse's house? The lair of a hungry troll? Or maybe even a dragon's den. Whatever it may be, he's determined to find out!

Author note

Rebecca Cobb is a fast-rising star in children's picture books. Having collaborated on three picture storybooks with Orange-Prize winner Helen Dunmore, Rebecca's solo books include the heart-breakingly beautiful Missing Mummy, the gloriously funny Aunt Amelia and Lunchtime, which won the Waterstone's Children's Picture Book Prize and was shortlisted for the CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal. In addition, Rebecca has illustrated picture books written by Richard Curtis, and her stunning artwork accompanies Julia Donaldson's lyrical story The Paper Dolls - also shortlisted for the Greenaway Medal. Rebecca lives in Cornwall with her husband and young daughter.
