About the Author
Belinda Landsberry is an award-winning author and illustrator, and a dedicated mother, grandmother, dog wrangler and cat whisperer. She has a Diploma of Teaching (K–6) with a major in Fine Arts, a Diploma of Graphic Design, and has trained as a nurse, copywriter, primary school teacher and art director. Belinda’s passion for words and pictures was evident from a very young age; at just seven, she wrote and illustrated her first picture book, entitled How to Become a Nurse. This beloved relic delights both students and teachers alike during Belinda’s author–illustrator visits to schools for Book Week. Belinda’s best-selling debut children’s picture book, Anzac Ted, is published internationally and was short-listed for the 2016 Western Australian Young Reader’s Book Awards. It was also featured in the Anzac Stories: Behind the Pages Exhibition 2017–2018, hosted by schools and libraries throughout Australia and New Zealand. Belinda grew up in Normanhurst, Sydney, and now lives on the north shore with her family. She also has a dog called Jersey and two very naughty cats who lie on her keyboard, her art desk and anywhere else they’re not supposed to be.
