CANVAS Home Doll Eyes Intro Read the Story About Eline Santos

About the Author

ELINE SANTOS graduated from the University of the Philippines at Los Baños with a degree in Communication Arts.

As a child, her Nanay read fairy tales from a big, thick book whose gilded pages contained real treasure. Brownouts were opportunities for wonderful storytelling time as the whole family squeezed into one bed while Tatay wove impromptu stories filled with aswangs, dolphins, and other creatures, both real and imagined.

Eline has written children’s books on the postman, architect, broadcaster, and fireman for Museo Pambata, and various articles for the Junior Inquirer.
