She was convinced that there were dragons living on this island, and has been fascinated by dragons ever since. She has a BA in English Literature from Oxford University, a BA in Graphic Design from St Martin's and an MA in Narrative Illustration from Brighton.

Cressida loves illustrating her own work, but also loves writing books for other people to illustrate as the end result can be so unexpected and inspiring. Cressida has written and illustrated eight books in the popular Hiccup series. The unique blend of child centred humour and sublime prose made Hiccup an instant hit and the series is now published in over 30 languages.

How to Train Your Dragon is now a major DreamWorks Animation feature film and has received both Oscar and BAFTA nominations for Best Animated Feature and Best Original Score.A sequel is scheduled for release in 2014 and an animated series is launching on the Cartoon Network in 2012.

Format: Paperback
Although I am 25, one of my friends brought me this book, as i have a rabbit and my name is Emily Brown, I thought it was a brilliant present and when I read the book I was not let down. Emily is a great heroine and stanley is good as well, i keep it on my coffee table and my friends always end up reading it whenever they come over, proving that people never really grow up.

My nearly 4year old daughter chose this book on one of our weekly trips to the library. Although she enjoys listening to all stories this one seems to have stuck exceptionally well- so much so that it is currently the only story she will have at bedtime and she has learnt much of it off by heart (no more skipping pages for me!!) The book needs to be returned to the library next week hence the reason I am buying her a copy for her birthday. Bedtime wouldn't be the same without it!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Emily Brown has lots of imaginary adventures with her toy rabbit, Stanley and that naughty Queen Gloriana does everything she can to take the rabbit away from Emily Brown. My little girl has lots of adventures with her toys and dolls so she can easily relate to this story.

The repeating sections are brilliant and my daughter likes to knock on the bedside cabinet and say "rat a tat tat on the kitchen door" and shes loves to yell at the top of her voice "And his name isn't BUNNY WUNNY is STANLEY!!?!

I cant rave about this book enough, its well written and fantastically illustrated.

My daughter has put her order in for THE THING which is in her wish list.

My daughter is two-coming-up-for-three, and although she doesn't really know what an army, navy or special commando force is, she adores this book. She, too, has learned whole bits of it off by heart and can recite them at the right moment. For me, though, the most important thing is that I can still bear to read it at every bedtime even after two weeks solid. The illustrations are charming and the moral behind the story is a sound one. And it's just the right length for bedtime.

My son (aged 2) and I first came across this book on an episode of 'Bookaboo.' The illustrations are bold and captivating, the story is unique with some repetitive lines which my son likes to say. You are introduced to all of the armed forces, who have been given the mission to bring 'bunnywunny' (Stanley) to the naughty little queen. Is enjoyable as a parent to read and gives you plenty of opportunities to do test out your funny voices. Emily Brown has become a firm favorite in our house, so much so we have purchased the other 3 stories too.

This book quickly became a favourite with our 20 month old and it's good fun to read for us parents too (plenty of scope for funny voices etc). The story is immediately engaging and full of imagination, whilst the illustrations are quirky and interesting. The version we have has an accompanying audio book, read by Tamsin Greig, and my daughter adores listening to that also. Highly recommended

One of the books I as an adult enjoy reading and looking at the great illustrations as much as varied ages of children do. The language is funny and down to earth; combined with the fantasy worlds Emily and Stanley (what a good name for her rabbit) visit and sound advice on acquiring a 'real' toy.. GREAT

Helen for Big Book Little Book

We borrowed this book and it was so worth a read. Although it can be enjoyed by younger ones I think this is definitely a picture book best suited to an older pre-schooler, or those in their first year or so at school. There is a fair bit of text for a picture book and some of the ideas and groups of people mentioned are well over the heads of younger readers (or should I say listeners!).

Emily has a much loved rabbit called Stanley, a great starting point for a story as most children have favourite toys of some sort. She and Stanley have lots of exciting adventures and this leads to a bit of a problem. Queen Gloriana the third decides she would like the rabbit for herself. She writes to ask Emily to give her Stanley (or bunnywunny as she prefers to call him) and in exchange she offers Emily a brand new bear. Emily however, is having none of it and stands up to the Queen saying a very firm "no". The Queen tries to bribe Emily with further offers and sends in increasingly strong forces to back her cause. Finally the SAS come and steal Stanley away. Emily is furious and heads off to the palace to fetch him back.
Emily teaches the Queen that to have a special toy you must love it and play with it until it is truly yours. It's brilliant.

I loved Emily, she is so un-phased by anything, and like many children, when it comes to her toy she will stop at nothing to protect what is hers! But far from being a story about "mine" in the selfish sense (a word we hear a lot in our house at the moment!) it is a story about love, loyalty and the joy of special toys. Emily is not willing to give up Stanley, even for the multitude of things she is offered in return. She demonstrates that some people (or toys) cannot be bought at any price.
