About the Author
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. Martina Heiduczek grew up in a small village on the Baltic Sea in Germany. Here she used to gallop through the forests on her Shetland pony, but she also loved to read and draw. After her study design and illustration in Hamburg, Martina moved to Australia. She creates funny illustrations in a mixture of digital and traditional media, like gouache, colored pencil and layers of scanned pictures. Her work is inspired by nature, people, her two home countries and the emotionally moving and silly things she sees ... Magic is everywhere!
