Not all creatures are night animals, but all creatures respond to the moon. Beautiful counting verse and luminous artwork bring to life the mystery and wonder of moonlight's effect on us all.
Sally Morgan is an Indigenous writer and artist who was born in Perth in 1951. She belongs to the Palkyu people of the eastern Pilbara in Western Australia. Sally is best known for her award winning book, My Place, which charts the history of her family. Sally is now specialising in writing and illustrating books for children and young people. Her personal interests are reading, taking her dogs for a walk and gardening. Sonny Day & Biddy Maroney are Australian illustrators, designers and artists operating a small design studio (WBYK). Their work is a conversation between two individuals played out in colour, shape, texture and drawing from their shared influences - comic books, skateboarding, music and film. Sonny and Biddy worked and exhibited individually when they met in 2001. They began combining their talents in 2006, creating screen-printed posters for Popfrenzy tours on their living room floor, and have been working as a team ever since. Today they work for clients big and small around the world. Since 2012 they have created many sold-out licensed film posters for Cinema / Pop-culture powerhouse Mondo, including two solo exhibitions in the company's Austin Texas gallery. They've also had solo exhibitions in Monster Children, Mart and MTV Galleries in Sydney and Lamington Drive in Melbourne, as well as contributing to many group exhibitions across the globe. Sonny conducts kids (and occasionally adult) workshops, designing and painting skateboard graphics. He is also commissioned regularly to paint murals and exhibits in solo mode as often as he can.
