Jackie French, best-selling author of over 140 books, including the iconic Diary of a Wombat and Hitler’s Daughter, is the Australian Children’s Laureate for 2014 – 2015. Jackie French has written over 140 fiction and non-fiction books. Her writing career spans 25 years and includes 248 wombats, 3,721 bush rats, 36 languages and over 60 awards in Australia and overseas. She is passionate about history, the environment and the conservation of wildlife and our planet. Jackie is also dyslexic, and is a strong advocate for the rights of children with learning difficulties. The theme for French’s two-year term as Australian Children’s Laureate will be ‘Share a Story’. ‘There are a million ways to share a story,’ Jackie said. ‘To read to a child on your lap; to have a child read to you while you cook dinner; to read to the dog when it has to go to the vet to calm it (or you!) down; to join a storytelling session at your library. You can also tell your grandchildren what life was like when you were young over the phone or Skype or read to thousands of people via video conferencing.’
