about the author:

Philip Bunting is a Queensland based author and illustrator.  Several of his books are co-authored with his wife Lara Bunting.

We love how Philip presents Australia-relevant environmental and social themes in a fun and engaging way for children.

Philip’s work encourages playful interaction between the reader and child, allowing his books to create a platform for genuine intergenerational engagement, and fun.

Since his first book was published in 2017, Philip has received multiple accolades, including Honours from the Children’s Book Council of Australia, and making the list for the Kate Greenaway Medal in 2018.

Philip grew up in the English Lake District, and moved to Australia in his early 20s.
