Elyse Shellie


Elyse Shellie is a primary school teacher and author with a passion for reading and writing children’s books that warm the heart and nourish the soul. She is currently studying for a Master of Education and in her spare time, enjoys writing book reviews on Instagram for picture books that encourage positive mental health in children. Elyse lives in Melbourne with her husband, their son (who is a Little Book Bear) and their golden retriever. Being 'Mum' to their Little Book Bear is her greatest privilege in life. Elyse’s debut picture book, The Little Book of Hopes (illustrated by Evie Barrow), was inspired by an Instagram post she had written for her son about the hopes she has for him. After a lengthy discussion with her husband about boys' mental health and the mental health of children in general, she decided to develop her post into a children’s book.
