Laura Ellen Anderson

Ten-year-old Ray Grey lives in the magical Weatherlands, high in the sky. Ray is surrounded by Weatherlings with astounding weather power at their fingertips . . . but she doesn’t have ANY magic!

Then, after a trip to Earth, Ray’s life changes forever. She is transformed from Ray Grey into RAINBOW GREY! With the help of her best friends (and exploding cloud cat, Nim) all Ray has to do is master her powers AND save the world from a mysterious, powerful enemy . . .

Join Laura Ellen Anderson on a rainbow-filled adventure into the world of Celestia, an enchanting kingdom in the sky. Meet the magical Ray Grey and learn how to draw her exploding cloud cat, Nim. A technicolour, fun-filled session of stories and drawings.

Laura is a star of the children’s book world – as well as the magical Rainbow Grey, she is also the author and illustrator of the much loved, bestselling Amelia Fang series, whose characters have captured the hearts of children everywhere and whose adventures are published worldwide. Laura was the official illustrator for the 2020 Summer Reading Challenge and has illustrated covers for many iconic names, from Enid Blyton to Terry Pratchett. Born in Essex, Laura now lives in London and when she’s not working, she enjoys doodling for fun, making 3D models, creating fan art and writing ‘To Do’ lists.
