About the Author

Emily Haworth-Booth is an author-illustrator and educator, teaching courses on comics, graphic novels and illustration at the Royal Drawing School in London and running workshops for adults and children at book festivals, in schools, and at other locations nationwide.

Politics and environmental issues are subjects close to her heart and often appear as themes in her work. Emily’s hotly-tipped debut children’s book, The King Who Banned the Dark (Pavilion, 2018), was shortlisted for numerous prestigious awards: The Klaus Flugge Award (for debut illustrators), The Little Rebels Children’s Book Award, The Waterstone’s Children’s Book Prize, Independent Bookshop Week Book Award. The book is currently nominated for the Kate Greenaway Medal. 

Emily won the 2013 Jonathan Cape/Observer/Comica Graphic Short Story Prize for her story ‘Colonic’ and was runner-up of the same prize in 2008. Alongside her children's picture books, Emily is currently working on a long-form graphic memoir for adults. Her short comics have previously appeared in print in the Observer and Vogue. Along with her sister, Alice Haworth-Booth, she is an activist with Extinction Rebellion.
