About the author

John Barwick is a widely published author of children’s fiction, children’s non-fiction and text books. He has published over 90 titles, and been shortlisted in the CBC Book of the Year Awards and in The Australian Awards for Excellence in Educational Publishing. Born in Moruya, NSW, he now lives on the Central Coast of NSW. His leisure interests include (unsurprisingly) writing, cycling and staying fit. Recently retired as a Primary School Principal, John now writes full-time. After two decades writing text books and information books, he has now returned to his favourite genre, writing stories to entertain and enthral young people.

This is the story of an ordinary boy… when he was a kid everyone thought he was quite odd. Always drawing quirky things and talking in funny voices while he drew. Until one day he stumbled across a weird looking pencil stuck in a sharpener. On the sharpener it read: whomever pulleth this pencil from the sharpener shall be given special powers.

Well … with a grunt and a groan and maybe a little toot, the boy pulled the pencil from the sharpener. Boom, kablamo, blort! The magical pencil was his. He could feel its power surge through him. Now tasked with spreading the magic pencil’s awesomeness throughout the land, that little boy grew up to be … Dave Atze the illustrator. Today, Dave illustrates amazing books for kids that sell all over the world including Cat Spies Mouse, the Max Booth series, the Nursery Crimes series and books about a kangaroo from Uluru!
