Megan Forward is a twice CBCA (Children’s Book Council of Australia) – shortlisted illustrator and author with a Bachelor of Visual Arts and a Graduate Diploma in Teaching specialising in Visual Art and English.

As a young girl she dreamed one day of creating picture books and is thrilled to be combining this dream with a love of building community around the natural world and the desire to share this love with children, because you care for what you love.
