Nicola Davies is returning to Number Seven this summer to celebrate the publication of A First Book of the Sea, which will be the third title in this popular series, following on from A First Book of Animals and A First book of Nature. We are delighted that joining her on the day will be illustrator Emily Sutton. The pair have worked together previously producing the colour filled Lots and Tiny - both award winning titles. A First Book of the Sea is a spellbinding collection of poems about the oceans of the world and their shores.

Throughout the morning visitors will be able to chat with Nicola and Emily, discover what inspires them both and hear about future projects. Nicola has a wonderful in-depth knowledge of the natural world which she just loves to share. Emily studied illustration at Edinburgh School of Art and is well known for her distinctive, detailed pencil drawings. She has love of folk art and admiration for 20th century illustrators such as Edward Bawden and Eric Ravilious which echoes in her work.

A selection of their titles will be available to purchase throughout the day and of course Nicola and Emily will gladly sign them for you.
