Age: 6 years

Breed (or best guess): English Cocker Spaniel

Assistant to: Author-illustrator Gabrielle Wang

Gabrielle is a children’s author and illustrator. She has written 18 books. Her first book was published in 2002.

9781760146788.jpgHer latest novel is The Beast of Hushing Wood published by Penguin Books Australia. In September a new novel, Ting Ting the Ghosthunter will be released. This is the sequel to A Ghost in My Suitcasewhich won the Aurealis Award for Best Children’s Long Fiction. The play of A Ghost in My Suitcase will premiere in Melbourne later on this year, then go onto the stage in Perth in 2019.   

Help or hindrance? “Hero helps my work day by reminding me to step away from the computer or drawing board and go to the park. Or just look up at the sky,” says Gabrielle.

“He is great company as the life of an author/illustrator can be a solitary one.”
