More About the Author

Born and raised in Scotland, Ross studied Illustration at Glasgow School of Art and on graduating won the MacMillan Children's Book Award for his first book The Sea Hole. His following book Supposing, was shortlisted for the Blue Peter Book Award and won the Scottish Arts Council Award. Ross now has over a hundred titles to his name including Busy Night, which won the White Raven Award, Alvie Eats Soup which gained an Oppenhiem Award, Billy Monster's Daymare which won the Royal Mail Book Award and Dear Vampa which won the Scottish Children's Book Award. Ross' book The Elephantom was shortlisted for the Kate Greenaway Medal and has now been staged at London's Royal National Theatre by the creative team behind 'WarHorse'. Ross now divides his time between writing and illustrating children's books and working on character development for animation houses such as Laika (Coraline) and Disney. In his private time Ross enjoys precariously swinging backwards on chairs.

By Mrs K
My nearly-7 year old lad read this aloud to me one morning during February half term. He/we laughed our way through it. It is very cleverly written and the storyline is not obvious (or at least it didn't fall the way I expected). At first, as my lad started reading, I was worried about too much emphasis being placed on nightmares, but this is only a starting point and it quickly took a number of speedy twists and turns away from this subject. LOVED the dog. The illustrations are plentiful, very entertaining and caused much amusement. My son had to explain one of the "jokes" to me as I didn't get it at first, so there you are (hoo-mans)! Excellent book, small and very easy to hold. I intend to give this as a birthday present in future. We will definitely be looking out for more Ross Collins in future.
