The Book

Emma Reynolds is a children’s illustrator and author based in Manchester, UK.

Her latest book Drawn to Change The World: 16 Youth Climate Activists, 16 Artists, is a middle grade graphic novel with each activist bio illustrated by an acclaimed artist from around the world. With activist interviews on the power of community, and illustrations to explain the science – Drawn focuses on the need to centre Indigenous solutions and intersectional climate justice, and also speaks on how we need more artists to transform society and tell new stories about our future – allowing us to manifest them into reality.

Emma’s author-illustrator debut picture book Amara and the Bats about bat conservation, peaceful protest and community action is a Nautilus winner, JLG Gold Standard, NSTA ‘Best in STEM’, and an Empathy Lab selection. In early 2019 she started #KidLit4Climate the first global illustrated climate campaign, bringing together thousands of children’s illustrators and authors from over fifty countries in solidarity with the youth climate strikes.
