This book is written by Peter Macinnis, the recipient of the Eve Pownall award in the 2010 Children's Book Council of Australia Awards for the sister publication, Australian Backyard Explorer.

In Australian Backyard Naturalist, Peter enthusiastically explores the animals that inhabit the places in which we live, from the furry to the slimy, the large to the tiny. He keeps readers entertained with stories about his own adventures with Australia’s creepy crawlies and other creatures, as well as collectors’ and naturalists’ stories from the times of first European settlement to recent times.

About the Author

Peter Macinnis was originally a science teacher but for the last 20 years he has been paid to publicise science in different capacities. He has an encyclopaedic knowledge of science and history and is a great storer of information.
