Description

Now available in paperback, the award-winning Museum of Me follows a little girl on a journey of discovery to find out what museums are and what they hold in store.

Brimming with anticipation, our young protagonist encounters giant bugs and peculiar beasts; ancient pots and contemporary paintings; feathery leaves and flowers as big as her own head! Marvelling at objects old, new, out-of-doors and from outer space, she soon realises that her favourite museum of all is waiting for her at home: the Museum of Me!

Illustrated in the distinctive, collaged style of début author Emma Lewis, The Museum of Me explores why we collect and preserve objects, and celebrates how a collection can reflect our identities.

Emma Lewis is an illustrator living in Falmouth. She studied at Falmouth University and Camberwell College of Arts and is inspired by folk art and Scandinavian design. Museum of Me won the Opera Prima Bologna Ragazzi Award 2017, and was shortlisted for the Klaus Flugge Prize 2017 and Nominated for the Kate Greenaway Award 2018.
