Mehr über Kate und Jol Temple

Kate and Jol are the award-winning authors of picture books and Jr fiction. Their book Room on Our Rock, can be read front-to-back or back-to-front for two different stories. For younger children it’s a book about sharing and building empathy and on another it’s an allegory for refugees and social issues. Their hilarious series Captain Jimmy Cook Discovers The Third Grade is about a boy set on being a famous explorer – one disaster at a time. It was selected as Honour Book for 2017 Children’s Book Council of Australia and shortlisted for Best Designed Book of the Year. Its follow up, Captain Jimmy Cook Discovers X Marks the Spot was also listed on the CBCA notables list. Other books include, Are You My BottomMike I Don’t Like and I Got This Hat which was 2016 National Simultaneous Storytime Book and was read by over half a million kids on the same day at the same time. They are ambassadors for Raising Literacy Australia and regularly visit schools and festivals talking to kids about writing and ideas.
