About the Authors

Margaret Wild was born in South Africa and came to live in Australia in 1972. She worked as a journalist, and then for 16 years as a children's book editor, writing only in small snatches, or at night when she had the energy. She now writes fulltime. Margaret is the author of many popular children's books, including, Fox (illustrated by Ron Brooks), The Pocket Dogs (illustrated by Stephen Michael King), Babs The Baby And Fog The Dog (illustrated by Donna Rawlins), Little Humpty (illustrated by Ann James) and Jinx, a story for older readers. Margaret's books have received many awards over the years including the CBCA 2005 Honour Book, Seven More Sleeps (illustrated by Donna Rawlins and published by Working Title Press); the CBCA 2001 Picture Book of the Year Fox, and her latest book the Dream of the Thylacine (illustrated by Ron Brooks) which was recently announced as a CBCA 2012 Honour Book for the Picture Book of the Year,.

Michelle Dawson was born in New Zealand, and moved to Australia in 1985. She has been working as a professional artist since 1996 and has studied both in Australia and the UK. In 2009 she illustrated her first picture book How Weird Is That? a fantastic tale (written by Gyan) which features a collection of amazing hybrid beasts woven around the theme of Australian native animals. Both an art book and a children's book, it was subsequently shortlisted for the 2009 Crichton Award for New Illustrator of the Year. Let's Go To Sleep is her second picture book and is the perfect vehicle for her work which invariably focuses on animals. Michelle lives and works in a converted church near the coast in rural Australia
