Emmanuelle Houssais is a French children’s book illustrator. In her children’s books, she likes exploring subjects that fascinate her. These subjects are often ecological themes like the story of the universe or the lives of insects and birds. Her latest book is about the wild forest (Forêt sauvage, 2022, Ricochet). She likes working with a large array of materials, most often acrylic, coloured pencil, collage, and stencils, to create colourful and joyful illustrations. Since her first album was published by Edition du Ricochet, she has diversified her art and now writes her own stories, combining pen and brush for the greatest pleasure of young and old people!
