About the Author

Corinne Fenton is the author of 25 books for children but her passion is picture books about social history. The classic Queenie: One Elephant's Story (ill. Peter Gouldthorpe) was Honour Book in the 2007 Children's Book Council of Australia Book of the Year Awards. The Dog on the Tuckerbox, also illustrated by Gouldthorpe, was a Notable Book in two categories of the 2009 CBCA Awards.

Andrew McLean has been a full-time artist for more than thirty years. Andrew and his wife Janet have created many picture books together, and Andrew also illustrates books written by other authors. Many of his books have been award winners: he has won the Children's Book Council of Australia Book of the Year Award three times. Bob the Railway Dog (written by Corinne Fenton) was his first work with Walker Books.


Nearly ninety years later, this story is still as fresh and inspirational as it was when Lennie reached his goal. * Kids Book Review *
Highly recommended. * ReadPlus *
Absolutely a cracking book for your collection and so highly recommended for your readers from around 7 years upwards. * Just So Stories *
beautiful rendition of a story that captures the heart and mind of both a young boy and a young country. * Sharon Greenaway Reviews *
The illustrations in To The Bridge capture the essence of the Australian bush countryside and 1930s Sydney wonderfully. * The Blog of Dad *
To the Bridge: The Journey of Lennie and Ginger Mick is wonderfully told. It makes this non-fiction story accessible, interesting and inspiring. I really think many children will be fascinated by the characters and events and will remember the story for many years, and perhaps even tell it to their children.? * CBCA: Reading Time *
Corinne Fenton's beautifully descriptive story To the Bridge captures the feel of the countryside, the struggles of farm life and the true spirit of Australia... Andrew McLean's sweeping landscapes, his beautiful pen and watercolour illustrations add depth to Fenton's story. * Read Plus *
