About the Author
Award-winning photographer David Ellwand was born in Liverpool, England, in 1966. For his eighteenth birthday, Mr. Ellwand received a gift that would change his life: a camera. He soon turned his passion for photography into a career and found himself working steadily on a variety of projects. In 1995, Mr. Ellwand released his first book for children, The Big Book of Babies, and followed it up with Emma's Elephant, both from Ragged Bears Publishers. For his next project, he used digital art for Fairie-ality (Candlewick), which garnered him critical acclaim and several awards. Afterwards, Mr. Ellwand returned to his original love-photography-and collaborated on several projects, including the enormously successful Amazing Baby series (Silver Dolphin). For his work, Mr. Ellwand has received numerous awards, including the coveted Booktrust Best Baby Book Award.
