About the Author and Illustrator:
Ellie Jackson is a mother of four young children who has written a series of books to help educate children about the impact of plastics on ocean ecosystems.
Ellie lives by the sea in Looe, Cornwall, and wrote her first book after living on Magnetic Island in the Great Barrier Reef in Australia, during which time, she and her young family saw a turtle called Duffy being released back into the ocean after a year of treatment for ingesting plastic. “My children and I were transfixed by the sight of this beautiful creature being set free, and subsequently visited a turtle hospital on the mainland to find out more. Once my children had made the link between plastics and turtles they were inspired to pick up litter from beaches so that they could help protect turtles and other sea life.”
In this way, Ellie, an environmental scientist who taught geography for six years, conceived her idea to use children’s books as a way of educating young people about the threat to sea life and our dependence on plastic.
Laura Callwood is a self taught artist and mother of two boys living in Cornwall and she has had a passion for art from a very young age, enjoying all mediums and styles of painting and drawing. Laura began working professionally in portraiture after the birth of her eldest son 8 years ago but has been working in illustration in more recent years. Laura finds great inspiration in nature, from the wild and windy moors to the beautiful coastal landscapes near her home. Illustration enables Laura to express herself whilst conveying vital messages about the importance of looking after our environment. With illustration this can be done in a gentle and thoughtful way that is easy for children to understand.
