Ellie has always loved picture books. As a little girl she thought it would be pretty cool to work on them - and even more amazing to write one. After a lot of dithering, cups of tea, and creative support from the fab people in her life she finally managed to do both. Ellie lives in London and her next life goal is to own a cat. A fluffy one. Karl was born in Germany and grew up in various places around the UK. Karl now lives in beautiful Carmarthen, in Wales, and works as an illustrator making picture books and screen prints, always leaving a paper trail of sketches and drawings wherever he goes.
