Libby's fiction and picture books have won multiple awards, including CBCA short-listings and wins, State Premier's Literary Awards, the Bologna Ragazzi Award in 2000, and the Prime Minister's Award in 2013. For her services to children's literature, Libby has been honoured with the Lady Cutler Award (1997), Member of the Order of Australia (2007), the Dromkeen Medal (2011) and the Nan Chauncy Award (2015). Award-winning and best-selling author and illustrator, Anna Pignataro, has created more than fifty books for children. Her most popular picture books have had international success and are published in seventeen countries and enjoyed in eleven different languages. Her work always evolving, Anna is also the author of a junior fiction series and has a diverse and quirky range of greeting cards. Through her work Anna hopes to connect with children and encourage children to follow their hearts, to be inspired by the natural world and their dreams and to always believe that anything is possible. Anna lives with her husband and daughter near the beach in Melbourne, Australia. Her home is often visited by a family of ducks and a very special blackbird.
