About The Author



Eleanor Kit is the pen name of Michelle Wade. A pen name inspired by two hardworking business minded grandmothers.

Encouraging curious minds in the preschool and primary school age group, Michelle’s illustrated children’s books have a New Zealand and Fiji theme (where we live, environment, native flora & fauna), and are inspired by her own pets.

The first series Michelle has created is called “Millvy’s Missing Tail.” It follows the adventures of Millvy, a silver Maine coon cat, as he travels around the world in search of his missing tail. Social-emotional-learning (SEL) features in the themes of perseverance, being kind and making new friends.

The 2nd series is aimed at pre-schoolers (an educational series) titled “ABC with Millvy”; the alphabet in two languages, and “123 with Millvy“, counting with tally marks. This series includes activity worksheets and a teacher’s guide, providing a valuable resource for kindergarten, home schooling, educators and parents alike.

The 3rd series focuses on the lives of Millvy’s dog brothers, Copper and Charcoal, who have also appeared in a New Zealand TV series, adding more stories and adventures to the collection.

The 4th series, non-fiction, coming in 2024 is based on the Authors journey of designing and engineering a unique gyroplane, an entreprenurial venture Michelle was directly involved with. Promoting an early interest in STEM to primary – intermediate or middle grade age.

Incorporating elements of fiction and non-fiction within the same book in all these series is aimed at creating an expanded shared reading experience that brings together individuals with varying reading tastes and interests within a household or community setting. This idea was inspired by Michelle’s personal experience while holidaying with her older son and younger daughter, who had very different reading tastes and dysgrahia.

Born in New Zealand, Michelle has had a diverse background. She has lived and worked in countries such as Austria, the Netherlands, England, and Australia – worked in Banking, Mining and Aviation industries.

In 2001, Michelle returned to Auckland, New Zealand, where she continues to write and create her children’s books, whilst being a Snr Project Manager in the Finance Industry. See https://www.linkedin.com/in/michelle-wade-5a50805/ for more info.
