The Author: Kelly Elsworthy

Cuddle Pirate Author, Kelly ElsworthyKelly developed the concept of the Cuddle Pirate whilst making up stories for her 3 year old son Jack and his friends. The idea being, to encourage them to eat their vegetables, by telling great adventure stories full of magical characters who love eating healthy food. If the children were good and finished their meal, the Cuddle Pirate would send them cuddles in their dreams.

Kelly is a keen advocator that education in basic nutrition and the identification of ‘healthy’ foods should be promoted from an early age. She believes this knowledge will not only encourage children to try new foods but to actively seek them out. This in turn will promote positive future eating habits and lifestyle choices as adults.

Kelly currently works in Sales and is based in Bournemouth, Dorset.

The Illustrator: Becky Dench

Cuddle Pirate Illustrator, Becky DenchAs with any children’s book the story is only part of the tale. The Illustrations breath life into the characters and make the stories come alive.

Kelly was desperate to find an illustrator who was as passionate about the concept as she is, and who could bring the characters in her imagination to life. After searching high and low, Kelly finally found what can only be described as the ideal partner in Becky Blake. Becky is a professional graphic designer and illustrator based in Weymouth, Dorset.

We hope your children enjoy the exciting tales and fantastic illustrations as much as we do and more importantly that it helps your children eat more healthily.
