Laura Bloom grew up in Sydney, reading constantly and dreaming of becoming a writer. Now she lives in a small country town with her family and lots of animals, writing novels for children and adults. Her books have been short-listed for awards and sold in many countries. Her latest novel for young readers, Mika and Max - about a girl who meets a boy who makes her see everything differently - is also published by Walker. Jesse Blackadder was a horse-mad city kid who wanted to be a vet, postered her bedroom with horses and crowded her dressing table with prancing plastic ponies. She became a horse owner when she moved to the country as an adult. Jesse has won several literary awards and published novels for adults and children, including Paruku The Desert Brumby.
Definitely one to pick up if you're a pony book fan, especially if you enjoyed Frankie's book! * Bookish Bron *
