More About the Author

www.emmaquay.com

Emma Quay (pronounced 'kway') grew up in England, and has wanted to illustrate children's books for as long as she can remember. Since moving to Sydney in 1993, Emma has illustrated a wide range of award-winning children's picture books. Her memorable characters for "Bear and Chook", "Good Night, Me", "Reggie and Lu", "Daddy's Having a Horse" and "Cheeky Monkey" are favourites on many children's and library bookshelves. Emma is the author of the popular series of titles for very young children, "Friends for Keeps" ("Freinds are Forever" in the UK; "Hello, Friends" in the U.S.), illustrated by Anna Walker, and her much-anticipated recent collaboration with author Lisa Shanahan, "Bear and Chook by the Sea", is short listed for this year's CBCA Book of the Year Awards.

A new picture book, "Shrieking Violet", which Emma both wrote and illustrated, is due for release in August 2010.

The illustrations are so cute!

Both my 3 and 6 year olds love it and we've been reading it as a good night ritual for a couple of years now.

I came across this book in the "new books" section at our public library and decided to check it out. This book is more for pre-school aged kids but the illustrations are amazing! DS who is a 7 yr. old "macho-boy" asked me to renew it three times! I've decided that this is going to be my no-fail "new baby" gift :)

Brilliant. It's my little boys favorite bedtime book. We read it
every night, and as much as I would like to try something else as the last
book before bed, I don't want to upset the rhythm this book has
created.

It's my children's favorite bedtime book...It's cute, it's funny, and brilliantly illustrated. Isn't it funny how the best books are the ones you wish you'd written youreself? Well, this is one of those books.

This is a beautiful goodnight story for toddlers. It's also great for new readers. Both my 3 and 6 year olds love it and we've been reading it as a good night ritual for a couple of years now.

The illustrations are very cute and feature a little monkey on each page. The text is simple and soothing. I've started giving this book as a gift to friends who have newborns because I think it's such a sweet book that will grow with the child.

Wish i could get hold of Andrew Daddo's Cheeky Monkey book it also looks very cute and fun.

Format: Hardcover
This story is focused around the point-of-view of the main character. The little one is convincing his body to calm down for sleep. He names body parts and, mentioning some of what they do in his busy day, he tells them to settle down for the night. Feet, knees, legs, tummy, bottom (“Enough wriggling, bottom. It’s time to be still.”), chest, hands, arms, neck, head, mouth, eyes (“Can you see any dreams yet?”). As his mother tucks him in and kisses him goodnight, he is drifting off to sleep. It is the cutest story.

This first picture book by Andrew Daddo is a wonderful bedtime book to help a child relax and settle down for sleep, and also be fun for a child who is learning to read. The illustrations by Emma Quay are delightful – soft and realistic-looking of the little orangutan. This is a book to treasure.
