Sam McBratney (1943 2020) is the author of the
internationally best-selling classic Guess How Much I Love
You and its sequel, Will You Be My Friend?, as well as
All My Favorites, all illustrated by Anita Jeram. He also
wrote Just You and Me and There, There, both
illustrated by Ivan Bates, and Mindi and the Goose No One Else
Could See, illustrated by Linda Olafsdottir, among many other
books for children.
Anita Jeram is the award-winning author-illustrator of I Love My Little Storybook. She also illustrated Kiss Good Night and other books by Amy Hest, Guess How Much I Love You by Sam McBratney, and many other picture books. Recently, her son asked her which one of the children in their family was the best - himself, his brother, or his sister. She explained they were all equal in her eyes, and he came back with another question: "Okay, then, who's the cleanest?" Anita Jeram says, "There's always one in every family." She lives in Northern Ireland.
For any family with more than one child, this could quickly become
a beloved bedtime story.
McBratney and Jeram again combine to address a common childhood anxiety in a relaxed, irresistibly soothing way.
