Felice Arena has authored and illustrated dozens of children's books, topped bestseller lists and garnered several awards, including five Australian Children Choice Book Awards.
Author's Comment: Q. Why do you write for children? Felice: When I wrote my first book and took it to a literary agent, he said I had a rare gift in that I had a voice in my writing that would instantly connect with children. I was thrilled to hear this. I've been often told that I’m a big kid at heart, and that I could speak to children of all ages. In the real world, I'm not sure what that says about a grown man who still sounds as if he's still in Year 7, but in the world of children's literature it's the perfect fit.
