Sarah Macdonald is an ABC journalist and author of the international bestseller Holy Cow. Sarah co-hosts the storytelling event and comedy podcast 'The Full Catastrophe' with Rebecca Huntley. She has two terrific teens who would say this book is 'fully sick' but they refuse to read it. Cathy Wilcox is a cartoonist for the Sydney Morning Herald and The Age, for which she has drawn since 1989, as well as illustrating numerous children's books, collecting three Walkley Awards and some Children's Book Council commendations for her work along the way. She is the mother of two children who have almost made it through the teenage years, and one eternally childlike dog.
