About the authors

Contributor Notes

Ellen DeLange has been fascinated by picture books ever since she was a child growing up in the Netherlands. In the attic of her home, she assembled a small library and shared her collection with friends and family. As an adult, she started traveling and expanded her library with picture books from all over the world. Ellen also enjoyed inventing her own stories and was encouraged by her daughter to write her first picture book, A Story with a Tale. Ellen has a doctorate in medical sciences and currently lives in Canada where she loves to walk in the woods with her Jack Russell terriers, drink lots of tea after a busy day, and sail on the ocean to clear her mind.


Connie Snoek worked as a theater maker when she discovered her passion for illustrating. She wrote the stories and designed the decors, clothing and figures of her own children’s puppet theater. In 2009 she decided to focus entirely on illustrating children’s books. She’s inspired by nature and by her journeys to Asia. Connie received an Honorable Mention for her picture book Cas de cat by 3x3 magazine of contemporary illustration in New York. Her work is exhibited all over the world.
