Description - The Dress-Up Box by Patrick Guest

The Frolleys have to move from their beloved house at 32 Sunshine Avenue to a place with dripping taps, stinky carpets and ants.

Author Biography - Patrick Guest

Patrick Guest was raised in the Melbourne beachside suburb of Seaford. Even as a child, Patrick was writing stories, starring in his own Powerful Patrick series: a major hit with his Mum, Dad and rabbit Snowball. A desire to be Michael J Fox took Patrick down the corporate path. After gaining a commerce degree at Melbourne University, followed by a three-year stint with a big mining company, Patrick realised that he was possibly the world's worst accountant. A dramatic change saw Patrick go back to study physiotherapy, and in 2000 he landed his dream job at the Sydney Olympics. It wasn't until his children were born that Patrick started writing professionally. Since then he's had four picture books published -- That's What Wings are For, The Ricker Racker Club, Rabby the Brave and the acclaimed The Second Sky with Jonathan Bentley. Nathaniel Eckstrom is an Illustrator based in Sydney, Australia. He has worked on a number of children's picture books including The Ricker Racker Club, Road Trip and Stubborn Stanley. Nathaniel has also illustrated for a number of commercial clients including Cadbury, the ABC, SBS and King Island Dairy.
