Elli Woollard is an exciting talent on the picture books scene, who started writing stories after an embarrassing incident in which her youngest son broke Michael Rosen's glasses. In addition to picture books, she also writes children's poems and stories. Her snappy rhymes, catchy rhythms, and witty stories are sure to make her a huge success. Her books include: The Giant of Jum, Rudyard Kipling's Just So Stories, and The Dragon and the Nibblesome Knight, as well as the young fiction series Swashbuckle Lil. Elli lives in London, England, with her four children, husband and two guinea pigs. Marta Altés is the award-winning creator of My Grandpa, I Am an Artist!, My New Home, and The King Cat. She loves to tell stories and her passion for illustration led her to study Graphic Design in Barcelona. Marta then moved to the UK to study for an MA in Children's Book Illustration at Cambridge School of Art (the best decision she ever made!) and graduated in 2011. Since then she has won the Read It Again! and the Nottingham Children's Book Awards, and her first book No! was shortlisted for the Waterstone's Picture Book Prize. Furthermore, her stunning picture book Little Monkey was chosen as the BookTrust Time to Read campaign title for 2018 and has twice been nominated for the CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal. Marta lives in London, England.
