Aura Parker is from Sydney, Australia, where she lives with her three children. Her background is in graphic design and illustration. Twig is her first book as both an author and illustrator. An absolutely charming book about a stick bug named Heidi’s first day at Bug School. Unfortunately she blends in so well that no one sees her. Many subjects are touched upon in this book including first day of school anxiety, making friends and overcoming shyness. The illustrations are so charming and detailed; children will find something new every time they open the book.
