Bright Artist Rebecca Elliott in talks with Clare Balding – BBC Radio 2

Last year, our very own rising star Rebecca Elliott made an appearance on BBC Radio 2 alongside nationally loved & publicly acclaimed Clare Balding, OBE. The interview, which took place in the last half our of the show, focused on Rebecca’s publishing inspiration from her daughter Clemmie and two sons, Toby and Benjamin. Rebecca is one of the first storytellers to tackle ethical subjects such as disability and death within her illustrations – portraying ‘heart-warming rather than heart-breaking’ story lines. Having taken part in her ‘fair share’ of commercial children’s books, Rebecca wanted to share and explore the subjects that children are genuinely interested in and ask daily questions about, but for some reason, no one wants to discuss.

Benji Davies : Goodnight Already (HarperCollins)

Meet Bear. He’s exhausted. All he wants is to go to sleep.

Meet Duck, Bear’s persistent next-door neighbor. All he wants is to hang out . . . with Bear.

Jory John, author of All My Friends Are Dead, and Benji Davies join together to create this standout hilarious picture book that will make bedtime memorable.

Following his international success with The Storm Whale and highly anticipated succeeding book On Sudden Hill (both Simon & Schuster), Benji Davies illustrates this soon-to-be classic bedtime story with a charming twist on his distinguished style. A hilariously playful take on the friend who just won’t quit, sleepy Bear endures the annoying antics of his energetic neighbour Duck through beautifully designed and textured spreads.

Goodnight already! has quickly gained critical acclaim only having just been released in the US market earlier this week, and featured first on Buzzfeed’s 25 Ridiculously Wonderful Books to read with Kids in 2015.
