Emma Quay is an illustrator and writer of many award-winning picture books; her memorable characters for Rudie Nudie, My Sunbeam Baby, Shrieking Violet, Daddy's Cheeky Monkey and Rudie Nudie Christmas are favourites on children's bookshelves all over Australia. Her most recent title for young children, Happy All Over, celebrates the small joys to be found in the everyday.

Emma grew up in the English countryside, and has wanted to illustrate children's books for as long as she can remember.
