About the author (2008)

Jackie French has written more than 100 books for children and adults, many of them award winners, including her 2003 ALA Notable Book Diary of a Wombat. French loves wombats. In fact, she's had 39 of them! She says that one of the reasons she writes so many books is to pay the carrot bill for the furry creatures. French is a terrible speller (she's dyslexic), but a terrific writer. She lives in Australia with her husband, children, and assorted marsupials.
