- Lola Lorikeet is sad. Why do her forest friends have bright, colourful feathers while hers are dull and grey? Soon she discovers the secret, and little by little, her rainbow colours emerge.
- Jenny Gahan is an experienced primary and special education teacher, passionate about sharing her love of reading and writing with others. She has worked with children diverse in age, culture and ability, which facilitates her writing of authentic stories. Jenny writes both fiction and non-fiction picture books that encourage readers to use their imagination, ask questions, and engage with their world. She particularly likes to incorporate themes of courage, persistence, and resilience in her writing. Jenny lives in Brisbane with two cats, Zoe and Chloe, who think they are human. When she’s not looking, they like to walk across her computer keyboard and add a few words of their own to her stories. When she’s not writing, Jenny enjoys photography adventures, and in the future hopes to visit more of the places that inspire her work. Sam is a wildlife illustrator living in the beautiful Mid North Coast of New South Wales. Growing up amidst a family of bushwalkers, bird photographers and artists, it’s no surprise that her love of art and the Australian bush began at an early age. Since graduating from the University of Newcastle with a degree in Natural History Illustration, Sam has continued to develop her skills as a wildlife illustrator. She has collaborated on projects with museums, art galleries and businesses in both Australia and Canada. When not at the drawing desk you’ll often find Sam out in the bush doing what she enjoys most: climbing, camping and outdoor adventuring. You can find Sam's artwork on Instagram at @samanthakate_illustration
