About the Author

Corinne Fenton is the author of more than fifteen children's books, but Queenie: One Elephant's Story is her first picture book. She is the Victorian coordinator of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators. She lives in Sydney. Peter Gouldthorpe is recognized as one of Australia's most versatile and skillful illustrators. He has received many awards and commendations for his work, including the Children's Book Council of Australia Picture Book of the Year Award for Gary Crew's First Light. He lives in Tasmania.


Gouldthorpe's realistic illustrations and Fenton's carefully researched history give this tale due poignancy.

Peter Gouldthorpe's illustrations of Queenie's story are deceptively powerful...
--Wall Street Journal
