About the Author

Andrew Daddo (Author) Andrew Daddo is an author, columnist, corporate coach, radio broadcaster, TV presenter, fisherman (hopeless), golfer (woeful), chef (getting better), dad, and well, let s be honest, he has had a go at just about everything. For the past twenty-four years, Andrew has worked primarily as a TV presenter. He's also authored eighteen books, has a regular column in Australian Golf Digest and Sydney's Sun-Herald and presented the Evening program for Sydney's 702 ABC Radio and hosted summer afternoons on 2UE. Emma Quay (Illustrator) Emma Quay (pronounced 'kway') grew up in the English countryside, and has wanted to illustrate children's books for as long as she can remember. She works from a studio in her home, and sometimes feels like she barely leaves it... but her illustrative work is held in collections around the world, including the Victoria and Albert Museum, London. Since moving to Australia in 1993, Emma has illustrated a wide range of award-winning children's picture books. Her memorable characters for Bear and Chook, Good Night, Me, Daddy's Having a Horse, Reggie and Lu, Rudie Nudie, Baby Bedtime and Not a Cloud in the Sky are favourites on many children's and library bookshelves. Emma lives in Sydney with her Australian husband and their two daughters.


In Goodnight, Me, a very sleepy baby orangutan is spending his last moments awake saying goodnight to his body. He thanks his feet, knees, legs, bottom, chest, hands and face individually for helping him throughout the day. He says, ‘good night, feet. Thanks for running me around today … thanks for holding my legs together knees … ’ as he takes the time to look at and touch the different bits of his body. Through its light text this book relies on a very successful visual narrative—the simple, short sentences are imperative to the rhythm of the story and the appreciation of the images. What’s most refreshing is the natural and imaginative engagement the young orangutan has in his meditation and respect for his body—something many adults strive to attain. It’s no surprise that Andrew Daddo is becoming more and more renowned for his younger children’s stories, but I think it’s illustrator Emma Quay who steals the show with this book. Her illustrations are original, beautifully coloured and perfectly complement the dialogue. Erin O’Brien is AB&P’s editorial assistant C. 2005 Thorpe-Bowker and contributors
