Andy Griffiths and Jill Griffiths are a unique writing partnership. Along with illustrator Terry Denton, they are the team behind some of the most successful children’s literature in Australia. They are best known for the Treehouse and Just! series, but their entire body of work is truly impressive.

Andy’s first published work was Just Tricking! (1997). Jill – now Andy’s wife – edited Just Tricking! and has been his editor and collaborator ever since.

Andy and Jill’s books have been New York Times bestsellers, adapted for the stage and television and won more than 50 Australian children’s choice awards.

Andy is an ambassador for The Indigenous Literacy Foundation and the Pyjama Foundation, and was awarded the 2015 Dromkeen Medal to honour his contribution to Australian children’s literature.
