IN 1988 Emma Chichester-Clark won the Mother Goose Award as the best newcomer to children's book illustration for Listen to This! compiled by Laura Cecil. Since then she has become internationally known for her illustrations, which include books by Margaret Mahy, Roald Dahl, Peter Dickinson, James Reeves and Anne Fine. She was shortlisted for the Kurt Maschler Award for Illustration in 1992 and again in 1998 for The Adventures of Robin Hood (written by Adrian Mitchell). Emma has also written and illustrated her own books, including the immensely popular I Love You, Blue Kangaroo (1998) which was nominated for the Kate Greenaway Medal along with it's recent follow-up Where Are You Blue Kangaroo?R (2000).
