Catherine Pelosi (Author) Catherine Pelosi is a Sydney-based children's book author. When she was younger, she loved two things in equal measure: animals and writing stories. For a long time she wanted to be a zoologist. Catherine has had several jobs working with animals, including in wildlife rescue, as a dinosaur tour guide and marketing for an animal shelter in London, but her love of writing never went away. These days, she writes as often as she can. Catherine hasn't lost her love of animals, however, and you will often find one or two roaming through her stories. QUARK'S ACADEMY is Catherine's first novel; SOMETHING FOR FLEUR is her first picture book.Caitlin Murray (Illustrator) Caitlin Murray is an artist, illustrator and designer who specialises in all things kids. Her art is fun, quirky and colourful and she has over fifteen years experience transforming concept ideas into actual products. Caitlin's work can be found on toys, children's products, stationery, picture books, clothing and much more. When she's not designing for Melbourne toy company Tiger Tribe, Caitlin works as an illustrator from her home studio in Melbourne, where she lives with her husband, her cat and her many art projects. SOMETHING FOR FLEUR is her third picture book.

Catherine Pelosi's QUARK'S ACADEMY is an engaging and entertaining debut for readers aged eight and up with an interest in STEM - or those who just love a well-paced adventure story with fantastical elements. - BOOKS+PUBLISHING on Catherine Pelosi's QUARK'S ACADEMY
