Author's Bio

GILLIAN CANDLER is an award-winning writer for children. Whose Beak is This? was an opportunity for her to write for a younger audience than the 'explore and discover' series, encouraging their curiosity, observation skills and wonder for the natural world. Gillian has a passion for nature and is an active member of Birds New Zealand and Forest and Bird. Her involvement in conservation projects has seen her feeding fairy prion chicks, counting birds, making seed balls and trapping pests. Gillian blogs about nature at ExploreDiscoverNature. blogspot.co.nz. She has a background in teaching and educational publishing and believes that picture books can be both fun and educational. FRASER WILLIAMSON is an internationally recognised artist/illustrator whose work ranges from large illustrative paintings to quirky children's books that try to amuse and entertain. Fraser wishes to portray characters and environments that allow for imagination and diversity. His work has featured in magazines, books and ad campaigns, both nationally and internationally, and he regularly exhibits his paintings at the Flagstaff Gallery in Devonport, many of which now adorn walls in Auckland, Melbourne, Finland, Malta and London. Fraser lives in Auckland with his wife Loisi and their son Antonio. They like to spend their time between Tonga, New Zealand and Spain.
