Hey friend. My names rob. Nice to meet you and thanks for stopping by my website.

While I’ve got your attention, I should probably introduce myself. I’m a children’s author and illustrator. It’s a pretty cool job. I get paid to make up stupid, immature stories (mainly for my own amusement), I get to draw awful, ridiculous pictures of animals, I get to meet other authors and illustrators who I think are cool, and sometimes I even get to visit school assemblies across Australia to talk to children about how important reading and writing is. Did you know that studying extra hard and getting good grades in school is by far the coolest thing anyone can do? It’s true. School is the coolest. But anyways, yeh. That’s me in a nutshell. I make children’s books.

And guess what… making children’s books isn’t the only fun thing I like to do. Some other things I like to do include: eating pea and ham soup, playing chess, saying the word ‘wowee’, listening to jazz, watching my favourite tv show ‘Survivor’ and snorkelling in the ocean.

If I could be any animal in the entire world, I would probably be an elephant beetle. That way I could prance around the beach all day squirting salt water in my face.

If you have read all the way up to this point, there’s some blog posts below if you feel like checking them out. If you want to be double cool, you can also help me out by subscribing to my newsletter below. I promise not to spam you. I’ll just flick you an email whenever I create a new story.

My Book Was on Display in The Louvre

I recently had the huge honour of having my book being placed on permanent display in the Napoleon wing of The Louvre in France.



Why was it on display you ask? Because I put it there while the guards weren't looking.
