In 2013, Andrew illustrated Jan Ormerod’s The Swap, which won the 2014 CBCA Book of the Year, and has been translated into 14 languages. Andrew has achieved huge success in both Australia and overseas with his Little Hare titles — What’s the Matter, Aunty May, One Little Goat and Yobbos do Yoga — and, more recently with The Pink Hat, published by Penguin Random House. Along with his children’s book work, Andrew illustrates regularly for newspapers and magazines, both locally and internationally. He lives in Strathalbyn, South Australia, with his family and nineteen pets.
