About the Author

Libby Hathorn (Author)

Libby Hathorn is an award-winning author and poet of more than seventy books for children, young adults, and adult readers. Translated into several languages and adapted for both stage and screen, her work has won honours in Australia, the United States, Great Britain and Holland. In 2014 she won The Alice Award, a national award given to 'a woman who has made a distinguished and long term contribution to Australian literature'. In 2017 she won the Asher Award, a peace prize, for A Soldier, a Dog and a Boy.

Her first young adult novel Thunderwith has enjoyed thirty years in continuous print and was made into a Hallmark Hall of Fame movie. Two of Libby's picture books, Grandma's Shoes and Sky Sash So Blue, have been performed as operas, with a third, Outside, with music composed by Elena Kats-Chernin, already on its way.

Libby is a keen educator who has lectured part-time at Sydney University and is devoted to being an ambassador for poetry anywhere and everywhere. In 2012 she was a National Ambassador for Reading and travelled to many country towns to talk about Australian literature. Libby acts as a judge for various literary prizes, including the NSW Premier's Literary Awards.

Phil Lesnie (Illustrator)

Phil Lesnie is a Sydney-based illustrator of children's books. He is also a children's bookseller. It is entirely possible that he hasn't read a title written for adults since he became one. He works primarily in watercolour, because in a watercolour painting even mistakes look lovely. He is the illustrator of Feathers, which was shortlisted for the Prime Minister's Literary Awards in 2018. His first three books were CBCA Notable books in 2015, 2016 and 2018. But his first cat, Cassidy, is notable all of the time.
