An Australian author who writes fabulously clever, visual and touching children's books. In many of her later stories she incorporates elements of aboriginal mythology. The background is well researched and her writing style makes the land spirits come alive, giving kids (and adults!) an introduction into aboriginal culture and legends that I have yet to see matched by another author.

Titles include:
The Sugar Gum Tree
Rattler's Place
Racecourse for Andy
And Older Kind of Magic
Night Outside
The Nargun and the Stars
A little fear
The Books of Wirrun (trilogy)
I own the racecourse
