Rebecca Elliot is a children’s fiction novelist who has always been a doodler and daydreamer. When she was six years old, her school project book had a line that said “I want to be an artist and a writer when I grow up.”
Following a brief detour into serious life, she got a Philosophy degree and then worked in a dull office job before her interest in creative pursuits came back.

Starting in 2002, Elliot has been an author and illustrator of dozens of children’s picture books that have become bestsellers and got nominations for some prestigious awards.
Her novels “Just Because” and “Sometimes” were inspired by her kid who has special needs.

These novels received accolades from Michael Rosen and Jaqueline Wilson and got much media coverage and five-star reviews from the likes of Radio 2 and The Independent among others.

Rebecca Elliot is also a tutor of adult courses on illustrating and writing children’s fiction. She regularly visits schools and has been at many literary events including the “Edinburgh Literary Festival.”
She currently makes her home in Suffolk alongside her history teacher husband Matthew and Benjamin, Toby, and Clementine their three children. When she is not writing her books, she can usually be found daydreaming and doodling.

As for inspiration, Rebecca Elliot has said that, unlike most authors and creatives, she does not have that one book or author that drove her to become an illustrator and author.

Nonetheless, she loved books growing up and used to read the likes of AA Milne, Dick King-Smith, C.S. Lewis, and Roald Dahl, in addition to any story that had animals. For the most part, he was more interested in coming up with new stories.
As a child, Elliot used to endlessly pore over several natural world books that belonged to her parents which came with some wonderful photos of animals.

She used to laboriously copy these in her various sketchbooks after which she would then make up stories for them. As an adult, she found one of these projects of hers that surprisingly had survived over the years.

Now a full-time author, Rebecca Elliot gets her ideas at just about any time. As an eternal daydreamer, she often gets many of her ideas on drives and long walks.
Once she has an idea it will usually stay in her mind for several weeks before she puts down anything.

Once she puts down the idea, it’s usually a matter of getting her notebook and fleshing out things alongside several drawings she has in her head which she will then arrange and edit into a spread.
She loves to do much of her work from the studio she built at the bottom of her garden before sending it over to her agent to validate her ideas.

“Eva’s Treetop Festival” by Rebecca Elliot is a novel with short chapters and adorable illustrations making it an excellent introduction to the Owl Diaries series of novels.
In this novel, we are introduced to Eva the Owl, who is leading her class as they plan a festival to celebrate the advent of spring.

However, the biggest problem they have is that Eva does not understand what leading means as she believes it is all about doing everything on her own.

Her classmates offer to help her with prizes and props but she ignores everyone and it is not long before she is overwhelmed. Soon enough, she finds herself in the unenviable position of having to seek help from her sworn enemy.
But she is afraid that her nemesis will be mean to her. However, her best friend tells her that she cannot control how other owls act and all she can do is make her request.

It is a great lesson and ultimately, Eva realizes how important teamwork can be as she works with her classmates to have one of the best festivals ever.

Rebecca Elliot’s novel “Eva Sees a Ghost” was similar in how it started as it tells the story of Eva. It tells of where she lives and what she likes and dislikes.

In this novel, Eva claims that she just saw a ghost soon after the teacher told a very scary story to the class. She heads out intending to track down the ghost but she cannot prove that it exists and no one believes her.
When she tries to take a picture, she is so terrified that everything comes out all blurry. One night in school, a loud sound is heard coming from the roof. When the owls go out to investigate, they finally acknowledge that ghosts are indeed real.
It is this event that convinces the class that they need to head out with Eva to hunt down the ghost. It is an interesting work that comes with a scary story and in the process helps kids by showing them that often things are not what they appear to be.
While Eva at first believes she is seeing a ghost, it turns out that they are just other owls she did not know.

She learns that sometimes your brain and mind can play tricks on you and the best thing to do is to always be open to other interpretations by having an open mind.

“A Woodland Wedding” by Rebecca Elliot is a work with a lot going on.
When Eva’s teacher tells the class that she is planning a wedding, all of them pitch in and provide all the help they can.

But a few days to Miss Featherbottom’s wedding day, she loses her necklace. Eva turns to her classmates who have been working as wedding planners and turns them into a Detectives Club.
Still, will she be able to find the missing jewelry before the wedding which could just as well be ruined if she fails?

It is a work that shows children the value of working together and has echoes of the show Wonder Pets.

It is also an interesting work for a child finding their feet as readers as it comes with a nice little story that can be read as a lesson while also coming with some great discussion questions at the end.
