Emily Snape is a children’s author and illustrator living in London. Her work has appeared online, on television, in shops and even on buses! She loves coffee and notebooks, and has three cheeky children, Leo, Fin, and Flo, who keep her on her toes and give her lots of inspiration for stories.
Emily loves to mix real life with a twist of fantasy, throwing everyday emotions and events up in the air and allowing us to consider them from another angle. Her previous books include Fergus the Furball, a funny tale for independent readers, and board books for younger readers. These include An Alphabet of Hugs, and Hey! Look at you…On the Move and Hey! Look at you…In the Jungle.
Emily has two sons close in age who often bicker, so when she decided to write a book for 7–11 year olds, she wanted to explore sibling rivalry, with humour and a fast-paced, unpredictable plot.
Blue Wolf Reviews
“Game On: Shrinkle, is a story for the children who love adventure of the gaming kind”
Barbara Braxton, ReadPlus
“This is the sort of story that will pull even reluctant readers away from their screens”
Gen West (The West Australian)
“Is it a book? Is it a game? It could be both! Game On! Shrinkle will have you playing (or reading) until your mum starts yelling to stop.”
“Will appeal to young readers, particularly boys, aged from 9 to 12 who like a good gaming challenge, and who have had those days when their siblings just drive them crazy.”
