Quentin Blake and renowned illustrator Emma Chichester Clark have come together to collaborate on their very first picture book (published by HarperCollins Children's Books on 6th October in a lavish hardback edition).

Three Little Monkeys tells the story of Hilda Snibbs and the three mischievous monkeys who turn her life upside down. A funny, riotous, truly charming story, it will delight picture book lovers, young and old. Emma Chichester Clark’s artwork brings to life the monkeys' chaotic trail of destruction, with colourful, glorious aplomb – and with an exquisite tenderness for the book’s impish but loveable heroes.

Quentin Blake and Emma Chichester Clark have been friends for many years and have enjoyed a strong, creative relationship since Quentin was Emma’s tutor at the Royal College of Art. This is their first book together; when Quentin wrote the text he knew that Emma was the only person to illustrate it.
