Author's Bio

Christina Booth is an award-winning author and illustrator working from her bush studio in Tasmania, Australia. Trained as an art teacher, Christina started her literary career illustrating for great Australian authors such as Max Fatchen, Colin Thiele, Christobel Mattingley and Jackie French. Passionate about the art of storytelling through both pictures and words, Christina loves bringing her art skills and imagination to life on the page. She believes that we learn more and celebrate much through stories and encourages a love of reading, listening and looking. She loves that she gets to tell stories and colour in for a living and loves to share her passion of reading, the environment and stories through her work with children and adults alike. Many of Christina's previous books are award-winning, including the Environment Award, CBCA Honour Book and CBCA Noteables. Spirit (written by Cherri Ryan) is her first picture book with Black Dog Books.
