Lisa Shanahan (Author) Lisa Shanahan is an award-winning writer of picture books and fiction for young people. Some of her well-loved books include GORDON'S GOT A SNOOKIE, illustrated by Wayne Harris, and BEAR AND CHOOK and DADDY'S HAVING A HORSE, illustrated by Emma Quay. Her picture book BEAR AND CHOOK BY THE SEA, illustrated by Emma Quay, won the CBCA Book of the Year for Early Childhood in 2010 and BIG PET DAY, illustrated by Gus Gordon, won the Speech Pathology Book of the Year Award for the 5-8 age group in 2015. Lisa loves moon-gazing, making up words, mint slices, mock orange blossom, black cockatoos, shouts of unexpected laughter, the weight of a scruffy dog resting on her knee and cups of tea. She lives in Sydney, close to the river of her childhood, with her husband, their three sons and one bouncy spoodle. Emma Quay (Illustrator) Emma Quay (pronounced 'Kway') grew up in the English countryside, and has wanted to illustrate children's books for as long as she can remember. She works from a studio in her home, and sometimes feels like she barely leaves it... but her illustrative work is held in collections around the world, including the Victoria and Albert Museum, London. Since moving to Australia in 1993, Emma has illustrated a wide range of award-winning children's picture books. Her memorable characters for Bear and Chook, Good Night, Me, Daddy's Having a Horse, Reggie and Lu, Rudie Nudie, Baby Bedtime and Not a Cloud in the Sky are favourites on many children's and library bookshelves. Emma lives in Sydney with her Australian husband and their two daughters. www.emmaquay.com
