Winner of the Waterstones' Children's Picture Book Prize.
It's lunchtime for one little girl, but she's just not hungry. A visiting crocodile, bear and wolf, however, are starving. It's just as well that children taste revolting!
Lunchtime, by critically acclaimed author-illustrator Rebecca Cobb, is a beautifully illustrated tale of food, friendship and fun.
Rebecca Cobb is a rising star in children's picture books. Since graduating from Falmouth College of Arts in 2004, she has illustrated for many clients including Guardian Guide, Guardian Weekend magazine, The Independent and Waitrose Food Illustrated. Rebecca has collaborated on two picture storybooks with the Orange-Prize winner Helen Dunmore, both set in her native Cornwall. In addition, Rebecca's stunning illustrations accompanied Julia's Donaldson's wonderfully lyrical story in The Paper Dolls and The Everywhere Bear. In 2011 Macmillan published Rebecca's debut solo project, the hugely accomplished Missing Mummy which approached the subject of child bereavement with great honesty, sensitivity and integrity. Lunchtime is Rebecca's second solo picture book, and although wholly different in subject matter from her first, features the same stunning illustration style and child-friendly voice. Aunt Amelia, Rebecca Cobb's third picture book, is every bit as warm, engaging and original as her existing books, and is sure to continue to establish her as a real 'one to watch'.
