Author Biography

ABOUT THE AUTHOR Emily Ballou was born in Wisconsin and moved to Sydney in 1991 at the age of twenty-two. She lives in the Blue Mountains and is a poet and screenwriter. Her first novel, FATHER LANDS (Picador) was published in 2002 to some acclaim. This is her first picture book. ABOUT THE ILLUSTRATOR Stephen Michael King left school to pursue a career in nothing much. Trying to emulate Vincent Van Gogh, he twice dropped out of art school, eventually finding a job that suited him as a children's library assistant. After three years hanging out in the mind of a child, he moved into the serious world of the Walt Disney Sydney studios, before having his first book published - a 'how to draw cartoon animals' book. His first picture book, THE MAN WHO LOVED BOXES, was the winner of the inaugural Family Award and was selected for Pick of the List (US). He has been shortlisted several times for a Children's Book Council Book of the Year Award and won both the 2002 YABBA and KOALA children's choice awards for POCKET DOGS.
