About the Author

As a child, Ashleigh Barton would borrow ten library books at a time and decided, at precisely age six, that she wanted to be a writer. Several years, a law degree and a couple of full-time jobs later, Ashleigh has finally made her six-year-old self proud. Now the author of the picture books What Do You Call Your Grandpa? and What Do You Call Your Grandma?, Ashleigh loves writing stories for children of all ages. She also works as a freelance copywriter, and prior to this worked in marketing and publicity for children's books at a major publisher, running campaigns for internationally renowned authors and illustrators. Ashleigh lives in Sydney with her husband, dog, and two little bookworms.

About the Illustrator

Martina grew up in a small village on the Baltic Sea in Germany. Here you could find her mostly galloping through the forests with flying piggy tails on her Shetland pony, drawing or reading. These days she is an illustrator and graphic designer and lives in Australia. Martina's illustrations are a mixture of digital and traditional media. With a passion for colour and textures she works with layers of scanned materials, coloured pencils, watercolour and gouache. Her works are inspired by nature, people, places, and the emotionally moving and silly things she sees out there... Magic is everywhere!
