About the Author

Cassia "Joy" Cowley, DCNZM, OBE (born in Levin, 7 August 1936) is a New Zealand author of novels, short stories, and children's fiction.

Her first novel, Nest in a Fallen Tree (1967), was converted into the 1971 film The Night Digger by Roald Dahl. Following its success in the United States, Cowley wrote several works for adults: her novels Man of Straw (1972), Of Men and Angels (1972), The Mandrake Root (1975), and The Growing Season (1979) typically focused on families dealing with issues such as marital infidelity, mental illness, and death. Cowley has also published several collections of short stories, including Two of a Kind (1984) and Heart Attack and Other Stories (1985).
Industry Reviews
"I love them. They're warm, they're witty." -- John McIntyre, Radio New Zealand
"This would make a nice read aloud to younger elementary school children. Also recommend to kids who like animal stories like Frog and Toad by Lobel or the Little Bear stories by Minarik." -- Starred review, Youth Services Book Review
"There are some real ethical dilemmas in this book, for which reason I think it would be really rewarding to read aloud and discuss with children. It would also be great for junior readers starting out with chapter books." -- The Spinoff

Joy Cowley's witty narrative will keep young readers amused. Gavin Bishop's colour illustrations capture the various moods of the stories. The desert creatures are sympathetically depicted warts and all - yes, there are toads - and his beautiful endpapers display a wide range of birdlife.
