Alison Lester

Alison Lester is one of Australia’s most beloved children’s authors.

Alison grew up on a farm overlooking the sea and first rode a horse as a baby in her father’s arms. She still lives in the country and rides her horse Woollyfoot, whenever she can. Her picture books mix imaginary worlds with everyday life, encouraging children to believe in themselves and celebrate the differences that make them special.

Alison spends part of every year traveling to schools in remote areas, using her books to help children and adults write and draw about their own lives.

Alison was Australia’s Inaugural Children’s Laureate from 2011 to 2013.
