Jan Ormerod grew up in the fifties, in a series of small towns in Western Australia, with her three older sisters. As a child she drew constantly and compulsively, inspired by beautifully drawn schoolgirl annuals from England and secretly acquired American comics that were forbidden by her parents.
Her books have largely been a celebration and savouring of the positive experience of parenthood she truly had not anticipated-the fun, the warmth, and the love. Jan was acutely aware that picture books are almost always shared by the child and a caring adult.
She published more than 50 picture books in her lifetime, won many honours and awards, and her work is published in more than 20 countries.
