After graduating from the University of Melbourne with a Creative Writing degree, Alex Dyson became a co-host of the national triple j breakfast show when he was just twenty-one years old. In his seven years there he woke up with approximately one million listeners every morning, and has interviewed everyone from Arnold Schwarzenegger to Julia Gillard, as well as almost every up-and-coming musician the country has to offer. Since leaving radio, he has DJ-ed at clubs and music festivals around Australia, hosted MTV Unplugged, opened a bar, run for parliament, and released his debut young adult novel, When It Drops, in 2020. Laura Wood is an independent illustrator, originally from a small town in the north of Italy. She studied illustration in Melbourne, Australia, where she started my illustration career. After a few years of seeking adventures and travelling around the world, she currently lives and work in Milan, Italy. Laura creates her art digitally using lots of textured brushes and a fun colour palette.
