Dr. Elana Ashley is a highly inspiring, multifaceted woman who is especially fond of children and art. She is the President of Dream Image Press, LLC, an interactive educational organization that includes the writing and publication of books and other written works, the creation and exhibition of original artwork, and the presentation of educational and entertaining programs/events for both children and adults. Dr. Ashley uses her background as an educator, author, artist, storyteller and ventriloquist to deliver an important lesson on bullying in her children’s series Splunkunio Splunkey Detective and Peacemaker. She relaunches her second book Case Two: Big Bully Holly Howler.
Dr. Ashley and her puppets take us on a lesson-filled adventure that teaches us to be nice to everyone, including those who may not be nice to us. The story opens with Ellie Elephant who is very upset with a new student at her school. Holly Howler is acting badly with everyone – shoving other children to get ahead in the lunch line, grabbing the basketball when children are playing at recess, taking property that belongs to other kids… In a nutshell, Holly is a bully! However, Detective and Peacemaker Splunkunio Splunkey’s advice to Ellie leads to Holly’s change of heart.
The book takes a unique approach to the topic of bullying and bullies. Splunkey instills in Ellie and the readers the importance of using kindness and compassion when talking and interacting with others. Everyone can change for the better when high values form the foundation for their words and actions.  In addition, Ashley’s puppet storybook characters are living the lives of real-life students – walking, talking and interacting outside and throughout the school – in the classroom, the lunchroom, the gymnasium, the hallways, the entrance to the school… The photographs are delightful expressions of everyday living and learning, which immediately grab the attention of young children.
Ashley’s book has been strategically relaunched during National Bullying Prevention Month (October) to open the eyes of children and adults to the reality of bullying and its adverse effects, to provide prevention strategies, and to broadcast messages of hope and meaningful transformation to people everywhere.
Along with her extraordinary puppet crew, Ashley combines storytelling with original poems and songs to present programs that simultaneously engage and delight audiences. The author has presented lectures and programs on the subject of Bullying – Comprehension, Prevention, Intervention and Resolution.  Her article “How I Created My Anti-Bullying Campaign and Where It Is Headed” was featured in the November 2020 issue of the magazine Northbrook Living. In 2020-2021, the Global Forum for Education and Learning (GFEL) nominated Dr. Elana Ashley as one of the Top 100 Visionaries in Education.
