Carmela D'Amico is the author and Steven D'Amico the illustrator of Ella the Elegant Elephant, Ella Takes the Cake, Ella Sets the Stage and Ella Sets Sail. Steven, with a strong interest in illustration, and Carmela, with a background in writing, had wanted to work together on a children's book project for years. Carmela explains, "I was striving for something substantial enough to stand alone as a story, but would also serve to showcase Steven's talents." The idea of Ella the Elephant came to Carmela in a dream, and the two developed the stories from there.
