This is an ode to the Australian outback and its icons as well as a rollickingly good read that kids will soon have memorised. ― Kids' Book Review

About the Author

Jackie Hosking is a Nigerian-born Cornish Australian who moved to Australia when she was ten. Jackie began writing for children after completing a creative writing course at her local community house in a seaside town off The Great Ocean Road in Victoria. In 2012 she was awarded a Maurice Saxby Mentorship and in 2011 she mentored a Maurice Saxby Mentee on writing in rhyme. Her picture book The Croc and the Platypus was published by Walker Books Australia in 2014 and she is pleased to report that she has another two picture books with Walker in the wings. In 2019 Jackie was awarded a May Gibbs Creative Time Fellowship where she spent a month in Canberra. Jackie loves to write in rhyme and when she’s not writing in rhyme she enjoys helping others with their rhyme.

Marjorie Crosby-Fairall is an internationally published illustrator of over twenty children's books.
She has loved picture book illustrations since she was a little girl. She often escaped to the library to pour over books and examine the illustrations in detail. Encouraged by her creative family, she gained a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Illustration.
Her books appear on the Premier’s Reading Challenge lists and have been shortlisted and won awards, including the CBCA Eve Pownall Award for her first picture book.
She still goes to the library to admire the picture books.
Marjorie is the Regional Illustrator Coordinator for SCBWI Australia East & New Zealand.
