About the Author

Doug MacLeod is one of Australia's leading writers of comedy, and has been part of the creative teams that have produced popular TV shows like Kath and Kim, The Comedy Company and Fast Forward. He has written 26 books, several of which have been illustrated by Craig Smith, including the award-winning bestseller Sister Madge's Book of Nuns. This story is completely true: his little sister Heather really did always fall in the water...This story reminded Craig Smith of the time he slipped off a rain-sodden log into a running creek as a kid, and realised he was losing the struggle to stay up. Luckily he survived, and went on to illustrate over 370 picture books, junior novels and educational readers - approximately 8500 published drawings. About 300 of these drawings (the best ones) have been in collaborations with Doug MacLeod.
