Corinne Fenton has a passion for picture books and is published in Australia and internationally.

Little Dog and the Christmas Wish was shortlisted in the Crichton CBCA Awards in 2015 and had the honour of being chosen as the theme for the 2015 Myer Christmas Windows followed by One Christmas Eve chosen as the theme for the 2016 Myer Christmas Windows. My Friend Tertius, published by Allen and Unwin, was a CBCA Notable Book in 2017. Her favourite kind of day is to sit with a new picture book text, searching for perfect words. Craig Smith is one of Australia's most prolific, best-known and well-loved children's book illustrators, with over 400 books published. He has collaborated with many of Australia's best-loved authors, such as Paul Jennings and Doug MacLeod, and has illustrated books for Allen and Unwin including The Big Ball of String, The Boy Who Built the Boat, Heather Fell in the Water, Where Are You, Banana? and I Was Only Nineteen. Craig's work over the last 30 years has been acknowledged in the CBCA Book of the Year awards, as well as in children's choice awards around Australia. In 2011, Craig was awarded the biennial Euphemia Tanner Award, which recognised his distinguished services to children's literature and his encouragement of the joy of reading in children.

All the tenderness, respect and fascination that people feel for zoo animals--and some of the cruelty that people inflict, too--resides in the pages of Queenie, a lovely, elegiac picture book. --Wall Street Journal on Queenie
