About the Author

Daniel Gray-Barnett is an illustrator based in Sydney, Australia. Self-taught, he studied Medical Science at the University of Sydney before swapping his microscope for pencils when he realised illustration had a much lower patient mortality rate. His illustrations have been commissioned by clients such as The New York Times, Sydney Opera House, The Boston Globe, Warner Music, and The Museum of Contemporary Art Australia. His work has been shown internationally and has been awarded by the Society of Illustrators NY, Communication Arts and 3x3 magazine. He has three grandmothers and Grandma Z is his first book.

'Grandma Z celebrates the power of vivid imagination, and the illustrations are absolutely spectacular, with bold colours and strong brushstrokes that convey a magical world ... Daniel Gray-Barnett ... has created something entirely unique that is both readable and a visual feast.'

-- Angela Crocombe * Books+Publishing *

'An unusual, joyful picture book.'

* The School Librarian *

'You won't find Grandma Z with curlers and knitting needles. Run-of-the-mill for this gregarious granny involves motorcycles, rock climbing, a dragon's tooth horn, dancing Icelandic ponies and afternoon tea at a palace - all while wearing a furry blue trench coat.'

-- Melanie Kembrey * The Saturday Age *
