ELLIOT FOXLEY is a classic coming-of-age story, and while the original music and charming voice-over bring the story to life, it is the beautiful, handcrafted water-colour illustrations that will transport your children back to the stories of your childhood.
ELLIOT FOXLEY is about a place we all know well – HOME – the thought of which can be comforting, sometimes overwhelming and often complicated. It is also about those who fill any home with love – FAMILY.
Aimed at children 3-7, ELLIOT FOXLEY will help kids understand how to process ‘big’ feelings and build their Emotional Intelligence*. It will also teach them ‘big’ words and help them on their journey into reading.
Also the Read To Myself section of ELLIOT FOXLEY contains an interactive feature where kids try to find ELLIOT’s guardian angel, Sarah the Owl, in the illustrations.
Most importantly for kids and parents alike, ELLIOT FOXLEY is entertaining!
*Studies have shown greater Emotional Intelligence improves mental health, performance at school/work, and enhances leadership skills* (Golman 1998, 2011).

ABOUT THE CREATORS:
Stavros Yiannoukas is a voice actor, ARIA nominated singer (Bluejuice) and former Triple J radio host with a serious penchant for backgammon and basketball.
The gorgeous illustrations of ELLIOT FOXLEY were created by Sarah Gleeson of Meekins design and illustration. Sarah is a daffy and dedicated human being who busies herself with all kinds of creative projects, many of which centre around human rights and positive change.
More adventures are soon to follow for Stavros, Sarah, Elliot and the friends they’ve met along the way – like the eccentric ringleader of circus cats, Kitty, and the philosophically reflective Greek rat president, Theo Theoropolis!
