Elisa Paganelli


Elisa Paganelli was born in Modena, Italy, and since childhood has considered books to
be her best friend. After a career in advertising and as an entrepreneur, she now lives
and works in the UK as a freelance illustrator and creative designer, accompanied by
her beloved pets. Elisa’s award-winning books include The Highland Falcon Thief
(Children's Fiction Book of the Year at the 2021 British Book Awards), The House with
Chicken Legs and Moon’s First Friends. Her aim is to work on projects linked to mental
wellbeing, nature and animal rights. She feels most at home when she’s out in the
natural world and on her bedside table is always a pile of psychology books, and very
often one of her cats.
