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
THIS ZOO IS NOT FOR YOU
“Told in rhyming couplets with beautifully expressive illustrations, it bounces along, a pleasure to read aloud.
Collins’s tale explores how the differences between things can be described, but has added bite. The story evolves into one about acceptance and understanding.”- THE OBSERVER
