About the Author

Karla Strambini was born in Townsville, North Queensland, and currently lives in Melbourne. She did well at school, especially in English and Art, and went on to study the former at University. Before her degree was quite complete she had a baby girl and spent the next six years raising her to be a genius, then began all over again with a son. In-between planning birthday parties for her children, Karla tried to write a couple of picture books. She has since completed a Diploma of Visual Art. The Extraordinary Mr Qwerty is her first book.

Reviews

The extraordinary pencil drawings will have students exploring the unusual inventions for hours. -- Library Media Connection * Library Media Connection *
Australian author/illustrator Karla Strambini's work will remind adult readers of that time in a child's life when words don't matter as much as illustrations -- LA Times * LA Times *
Australian Strambini's people are reminiscent of English author-illustrator Raymond Briggs' characters; they have a slightly old-fashioned appearance, aided by the predominantly black-and-white pencil illustrations with spot colour. These are imaginative, and highly detailed ... for those 5 and above there will be hours of looking, discussing and wondering in store. Clever and quirky, Mr Qwerty is likely to appeal to many adults, too. * Otago Daily Times *
A picture book that celebrates creativity and imagination...and the courage to share them. * Kirkus *
