About the Author

Should you meet Elanna Allen, author/illustrator of Itsy Mitsy Runs Away, she may tell you about the characters she created for Playhouse Disney, “Whiffle and Fuzz”; or those award-winning films she wrote and directed for Nickelodeon; or maybe even that music video she directed for Moby.  What she won’t tell you is that she hates bedtime, and once, when she ran away from home, she had to get her dad to help her cross the street. Elanna splits her time between London and New York.
