Author note

Ellie loved drawing from an early age and has a passion for picture books (she keeps her collection in a huge wardrobe in her studio!) After competing a degree in Graphic Design at Bath Spa University, she became interested in drawing and writing specifically for children, and went on to achieve a Master's degree in Children's Book Illustration at Cambridge School of Art. As a child, her favourite picture book was The Very Hungry Caterpillar, and she still loves the work of Eric Carle. In her spare time Ellie loves to get stuck into some DIY or go out in her kayak, and she dreams of one day owning her very own sausage dog.


Irish Times||An enchanting picture book... a sweet story about the joys of friendship and ideal for any child who worries about being different.
Baby & Me||A gentle way to remind your child to get along with others.
Junior||A simple story, gently told, and the lovely illustrations really bring the book to life... with soft, rich, pastel colour and texture... a delightful debut!
