    Emma Reynolds is an illustrator and author based in Manchester, UK. Her debut author-illustrator picture book Amara and the Bats is due for release in summer 2021 with Atheneum - Simon & Schuster.

    When Amara moves to a new town, she discovers that her beloved bats no longer live nearby because so many trees are being cut down. Determined to make a difference, Amara rallies her new friends to save the bats. 

    Passionate about storytelling and creating unique characters, Emma is the illustrator of Rescuing Mrs. Birdley written by Aaron Reynolds, released in July 2020 with Simon & Schuster.

    Emma started the #KidLit4Climate illustrated campaign, bringing together over 3,000 children's illustrators and authors from over 50 countries in solidarity with the youth climate strikes. In May 2020 she shaved her head to raise money for Bat Conservation Trust.

    Emma's favourite food is pizza. She is inspired by nature, animals, adventure, and seeing the magic in the everyday. She loves bats, cats and bears, walking in the wild and exploring the world.
