Emily Gravett did a BA in illustration at Brighton University. During her second year as a student, Emily entered one of her school projects for the MacMillan Prize for Children's Illustration, a competitive annual award to art students established in 1985. She earned a "Highly Commended" and later went on to win the prize in her final year, when she entered two books that the judges ranked first and second. One of these was Wolves which became her first published book.
She has twice won the Kate Greenaway Medal, in 2005 with Wolves and in 2008 with Little Mouse’s Big Book of Fears. Several of her other books have also been shortlisted for this prize. Another of her books, Monkey and Me, won the 2007 Booktrust Best Emerging Illustrator for children up to five-years-olds.
