Gillian Candler is an award-winning author who brings her knowledge and skills in education and publishing to her passion for the natural world. She has always been intrigued by how New Zealand must have looked to the very first people who set foot here, and wanted to find out more about what animals lived here then. She found her first fossil when she was 5 years old - an experience she'll never forget - and it opened up a whole new world of interest. Ned Barraud is an illustrator with a keen passion for the natural world. He illustrated the four previous titles in the award-winning 'explore discover' series, along with his first children's fiction title, Moonman. When not illustrating, he works on films at Weta Digital as a texture artist and enjoys exploring the outdoors with his wife and three children.
