Ross Collins

On graduating from Glasgow School of Art Ross won the MacMillan Prize for his first picture book. Since then he’s illustrated over 120 books for children and written about a dozen or so. Children in over 20 countries seem to enjoy them.  Awards include the inaugural Amnesty International Honour, the UKLA Award, The Royal Mail Children’s Book Award and two short listings for the Kate Greenaway Medal.

Ross’ book ‘The Elephantom’ was adapted into a critically acclaimed play by those clever people at the National Theatre who made that ‘War Horse’ thing.

When he’s not creating children’s books he enjoys working on character development for animation studios like Laika and Disney.  He also likes walking in the Scottish glens with his dog Hugo, who is an idiot and his partner Jacqui, who is not.

REVIEWS
"There isn’t an illustrator in Britain who uses a more intelligent visual storytelling language." TES

THERE'S A BEAR ON MY CHAIR
“A superb example of how interesting words and evocative pictures should work together and one which also demonstrates a very clever use of design; with differing font size and colour expressing tone, emphasis and volume. The clever rhyme reads aloud very well and the perfectly expressive and humorous illustrations really engage young children in discussing the story and the issues of restorative justice that it raises, providing a wonderful stimulus for dramatic re-telling."
