We guarantee laughs at the exploits of Super Snail and Steven Seagull. Ideal for the 4+ age group.

Picture of Elys Dolan

When not writing and illustrating books Elys grows cacti, collects pocket watches and waits for the day that someone will bake her banana bread.

She’s a lecturer on the MA in Children’s Book Illustration at the Cambridge School of Art where she does a lot of loud speaking.

Elys also has a PhD in humour in picture books, so she’s technically Dr Dolan of doing funny pictures.
