Nicki Greenberg is a writer and illustrator based in Melbourne, Australia. Her first picture books, The Digits series, were published when she was fifteen years old. She later spent ten years disguised as a lawyer, while maintaining a not-so-secret Other Life as a comics artist and children’s book author. Nicki is the creator of the award-winning ‘staged- on-the-page’ adaptation of Shakespeare’s Hamlet, and of the graphic adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby. Inspired by her own young children, Nicki has written and illustrated a range of delightful picture books for younger readers including Monkey Red Monkey Blue, BOM! went the Bear, The Naughtiest Reindeer and Teddy Took the Train.
