Macquarie Island lies in the Southern Ocean, between Antarctica and New Zealand. A speck of green in the vast, windswept sea, it is a haven for many creatures that live above and below the waves. In One Small Island, Alison Lester and Coral Tulloch bring us the story of this remote and precious World Heritage Site. Together they explore the island's unique geological beginnings, discovery and degradation at the hands of humans, and the battle to restore it today.

Alison Lester (Author)
Alison Lester is one of Australia's most popular and bestselling creators of children's books. Her picture books mix imaginary worlds with everyday life, encouraging children to believe in themselves and celebrate the differences that make them special.

In a career spanning decades, Alison Lester has written many books, and won numerous prestigious awards, including the Children's Book Council of Australia (CBCA) Picture Book of the Year Award for her much-loved classic Are We There Yet? and the CBCA Eve Pownall Book of the Year Award for One Small Island. Her much-loved picture books include Kissed by the Moon, Running with the Horses, Sophie Scott Goes South and My Dog Bigsy - to name just a few. Alison Lester became Australia's first Children's Book Laureate in 2012, a position shared with Boori Monty Pryor. In 2016, Alison was awarded the Dromkeen Medal for her outstanding achievement in the creation of Australian children's and young adult literature.

Alison lives on a farm in the Victorian countryside. She spends part of each year travelling to schools around Australia, helping students and teachers develop their own stories.

Coral Tulloch (Illustrator)
Coral Tulloch has illustrated over 50 fiction and non-fiction books for children, in Australia and internationally.

She is the creator of a syndicated page for children, 'The Tales of Wombat Creek', which appeared for over 20 years in newspapers throughout Australia and overseas. Her book Antarctica, The Heart of the World, which she wrote and illustrated, won the Environment Award for Children's Literature in 2004.

As well as having a passion for environmental education, Coral loves Antarctica, which she visits when she can as artist-in-residence on tourist voyages; but recently drawings of penguins have given way to tortoise shells.

Coral lives in Hobart with her husband, Peter and daughter, Tully.
