AUSTRALIAN AUTHOR Age, race, culture, loneliness, relationships and the pandemic are all neatly drawn together in this outstanding picture book for young children. Claire Malone and her cat, Marmalade are back in Claire Malones Makes a Friend, a delightful and charming picture book about life in lockdown.

In her trademark style of positivity and action, Claire works through the loneliness and monotony of lockdown by looking outside her own life to affect change. Claire, yet again, shows us how to be an agent for positive change in our own neighbourhoods. A charming and relevant sequel to Claire Malone Changes the World with delightfully lively and colourful illustrations by Alisa Knatko. AUTHOR: Nadia L King is an Australian author of Indian and Irish descent. She is a children's author and award-winning short story writer who believes passionately in the power of stories to make the world a better place. Nadia's short stories have been published in Australia and internationally. She is the winner of the 2020 Maureen Freer Literary Competition for the short story category, and in 2019 she was awarded the Stuart Hadow Short Story Prize. Nadia is currently undertaking postgraduate studies in English and creative writing. She lives in Western Australia with her family and ever-expanding collection of books. Alisa Knatko was born in St. Petersburg, Russia. From her earliest childhood she was passionate about drawing. Having worked in academic art, digital design, advertising and even web design, Alisa found her ideal field in freelance illustration. Her style is a mixed technique that includes balanced composition, graphic appeal of lines, expressive poses and minimalistic colour scheme with random patterns and textures. Alisa gets her inspiration from the beautiful city of Saint-Petersburg, her two little kids, ballet dancing and just sitting in a local coffee shop, contemplating people passing by.
