George has no interest in exploring the world. He's far too busy at home baking fine pastries. Or so he tells everyone when they invite him along on their wonderful adventures. But when his friend Pascal digs a little deeper, the real reason George won't leave home is finally revealed ...

Gus Gordon is an illustrator and author. He grew up on a farm in northern NSW and, after leaving school, worked on cattle stations all over Australia before deciding to pursue a drawing career. He moved to Sydney and studied at the Julian Ashton School of Art. Gus illustrated his first children's book in 1996 and has now illustrated and written over 70 books for children. Gus's illustrations are known for their loose and energetic line work, mixed media and humour. His writing is always anthropomorphic - where animals take the place of humans in the narrative. He attributes this to his love of Kenneth Grahame's Wind in The Willows. Gus's first picture book, Wendy, is about a motorcycle-riding stunt chicken and was selected as a Children's Book Council of Australia (CBCA) Notable Book in the 2010 Book of the Year Awards. His new picture book is set in New York and is called Herman and Rosie. Gus lives with his wife and three children on the Northern beaches of Sydney. http://www.gusgordon.com/ and http://www.facebook.com/GusGordonbooks
