About the Author
Australian author Alison Lester is perhaps best known for her picture books. However, she captivated her audience with her first novel, The Quicksand Pony. In a starred review School Library Journal called it a gripping adventure story, a tale of survival, an engaging mystery, a touching animal story, and a family saga.
