Synopsis

Nuts in Space by Elys Dolan

An elite crew of furry animals are celebrating. They have found the Lost Nuts of Legend and according to the myth, the bearer of this mythical snack will be immortal, invincible and never will it be past their bedtime - now all they have to do is go home. But - oh dear - if only it were that simple. Everyone is starving, the Star Nav is broken, the neighbours are distinctly unfriendly and it was a really, REALLY bad idea to stop at the Death Banana and ask for directions. Will they EVER find their way home? And, most importantly will they get home before something happens to the Nuts?'

About the Author

Elys Dolan

Elys Dolan is an author and illustrator living in Cambridge. She grew up in a part of Sussex that consists almost entirely of trees and cows and she was named after a department store in Wimbledon. She's never let either of these things hold her back and Elys recently graduated with distinction from the MA in Children's Book Illustration at the Cambridge School of Art. Elys has been awarded second place in the Macmillan Prize and was also shortlisted for the Waterstone's ‘Picture This’ prize. Elys works predominately with ink, newfangled digital witchcraft and coloured pencils of which she is the proud owner of 178 but can never seem to find a sharpener. Her other books include Steven Seagull Action Hero and Mr Bunny’s Chocolate Factory. The Bookseller's Fiona Noble picked Elys as 'One to Watch' in 2015. When not doing pictures and making things up, Elys enjoys growing cacti, collecting pocket watches and eating excessive amounts of fondant fancies. She is also studying for a PhD on comedy in picture books at Anglia Ruskin University.
