A graduate of the Glasgow School of Art, Ross Collins won the MacMillan Prize for his first picture book. Since then he's illustrated more than one hundred books for children and written about a dozen or so. Children in more than twenty countries seem to enjoy his books, several of which have won enormous glittering awards.
Ross’s book The Elephantom has been 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.
“There isn’t an illustrator in Britain who uses a more intelligent visual storytelling language.”— TES (U.K.)
