Cave baby

Donaldson, Julia; Gravett, Emily

A hairy mammoth takes a cheeky little baby on a thrilling ride through a moonlit landscape populated by a sabre-toothed tiger, a leaping hare, a laughing hyena and even, just maybe, by a big brown bear. But where are they all going? And what has it to do with the baby's scribblings on the cave wall?

Author note

Julia Donaldson is the outrageously talented, prize-winning author of the world's best-loved picture books, and was the 2011-2013 UK Children's Laureate. Her books include The Troll, What the Ladybird Heard and the modern classic The Gruffalo, which has sold over 13.5 million copies worldwide and has been translated into over sixty languages. Julia also writes fiction as well as poems, plays and songs and her brilliant live children's shows are always in demand. Julia and her husband Malcolm divide their time between Sussex and Edinburgh.

Emily Gravett is an artist of exceptional talent. Twice winner of the Kate Greenaway Medal, her sharp wit and seemingly effortless drawing have created such brilliant picture books as Wolves, Monkey and ME and The Rabbit Problem. Cave Baby was Emily's first picture book collaboration and marks another milestone in her career. Emily lives in Brighton with her family and their two dogs, Otto and Edith.
