    Peter Cheong

    We are thrilled to introduce Peter Cheong as the amazing illustrator and artist behind this book. Books have always been a vital part of his life. Growing up on Roald Dahl and having adventures with Calvin and Hobbes, Peter was heavily influenced by the way Quentin Blake and Bill Watterson brought stories to life. After spending several years in the Australian Army, Peter finally decided to pursue his dream of a career in illustration. He lives in Perth, Western Australia, with his wife, creating characters and telling their stories. This is his debut picture book.
