WITH MY MUMMY
Days with my mummy are always such fun, and ever so special together, as one. From playing in the park to cuddles at bedtime, being with Mummy makes every moment of every day special. A touching celebration of the special relationship between mother and child. Warmly told in gentle rhyme by James Brown and brought to life with charming illustrations by Cally Johnson-Isaacs. With My Mummy is a heartwarming picture book and the perfect gift to share time and time again. Companion title, With My Daddy, also available., James Brown filled in a careers questionnaire when he was 13 which told him he was definitely going to be a teacher and an illustrator – and it was right! James studied English Literature in Sheffield and Stockholm before taking up Creative Writing at St Andrews University. He was one of five illustrators to win the SCBWI’s Undiscovered Voices 2014 competition, and since then James has been balancing his job as an English teacher with writing and illustrating books for children of all ages. James grew up in Nottingham where he now lives with his wife, daughters and a cat called Peg. With My Mummy is his first picture book for Macmillan. Cally Johnson-Isaacs has loved to draw ever since she first picked up a crayon. After graduating in Illustration from Newcastle Art College, Cally spent a few years illustrating greetings cards before becoming a freelance illustrator. She now works from her home studio where she has a lovely view of the Northumberland countryside and is kept company by Jasper the dog. Cally is the illustrator of Rabbits Don’t Lay Eggs! and the Mimi’s Magical Fairy Friends series for Macmillan.
