About the Author

Laurie Ellen Angus grew up near the beach and could often be found knee deep in the water searching with delight for sea creatures to play with, such as horseshoe crabs, and also routinely chasing her younger brother around with them. Laurie doesn't chase her brother anymore, but does continue her fascination with the ocean, often taking long walks and observing the diversity of sea life along the shore. Laurie attended Parson's School of Design in NYC. Combining her love of nature and design into her artwork, she hopes to inspire children to have a similar fascination of the many amazing creatures that live in the ocean. Laurie lives on Long Island, New York, with her husband Richard, two quirky cats, and a rambunctious rabbit. This is Laurie's debut book.
