As a little boy, Jonathan Bentley liked football and drawing. When he was eight years old, he realised he wouldn’t be good enough to play football for Leeds United – so he concentrated on drawing instead. He is now one of Australia’s most treasured illustrators. Jonathan has worked with authors such as Margaret Wild and Andrew Daddo, as well as writing and illustrating many of his own titles. His award-winning picture books – including Windows, A House of Her Own, Pink, The Second Sky, Where is Bear? and Cat and Dog – have been published all over the world.
