Author Biography - Margaret Wild

Margaret Wild (Author) is Australia's leading picture book writer. She was born in Eshowe, a small town in South Africa. Margaret has written over twenty books, many of which have appeared in foreign editions. All have been highly acclaimed. Jenny Angel (which was inspired by her brother's death at the age of seven), illustrated by Anne Spudvilas, Fox, illustrated by Ron Brooks and The Very Best of Friends, illustrated by Julie Vivas are all winners of the CBC Picture Book of the Year Award. Her most recent picture book with Penguin is The Treasure Box. She now lives in Sydney. Freya Blackwood (Illustrator) is one of the most talented children's illustrators in the world today. Her stunning and iconic illustrations perfectly capture the warmth and complexity of growing up. While warm and classic, her style has a unique quality that renders her work instantly recognisable. The pathos of her characters is a joy to behold, and her work has deservedly captured international attention and a swag of awards and nominations. These include the prestigious Kate Greenaway Medal (2010), which is the UK's most prestigious award for children's illustration, and the CBCA Picture Book of the Year Award - Early Childhood (2007). Her most recent books are Maudie and Bear (2010), Harry and Hopper (2009), Her Mother's Face (2009) and Amy and Louis (2006). The Treasure Box is Freya's first book with Penguin Australia. Freya lives in Orange, NSW, with her daughter, Ivy.
