              What drew the boys into the cornfield that day? Bravado? Stupidity? Or was it more? Was it really to discover the truth behind the disappearance of that Pinchly kid...the one who went in, and never came out? AUTHOR: Gary Crew has published over 70 novels and illustrated books. He... is particularly interested in the mysterious and the macabre. Among his many other awards, Gary has won the Children's Book Council of Australia's Book of the Year four times, twice for his novels, twice for his illustrated books. He lives in the cool temperate mountains of Maleny, on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland and loves Jack Russell Terriers. About the writing There are certain places that make us feel uneasy.

Gary Crew ILLUSTRATOR: Aaron Hill is a practicing visual artist and freelance illustrator. He has been shortlisted for the Crichton Award for Illustration ('Automaton', written by Gary Crew, Lothian Melbourne. 2006) and his previous collaboration with Gary Crew, 'Damon' (Hachette Sydney 2011), was selected for Europe's prestigious White Raven award for illustrated books. Aaron is a prolific note taker and sketcher and can rarely be found without a pencil or pen in hand. About the illustrating When illustrating Corn Field I was interested in creating a visual narrative that was in conflict with the narrative presented in the printed (verbal) text. I wanted to explore how visual constructs could be used to force the reader to question the validity of the narr
