The line-up

Ken Wilson-Max – Writer / Illustrator

Ken Wilson Max is the author of Astro Girl, the Lenny books, The Drum, and more than 70 other books for young children published all over the world. Ken also works at award-winning independent publisher, Alanna Max. He was born in Zimbabwe and spent his early childhood living near Victoria Falls. His fondest memories are of laughing, singing, dancing and eating with his large and truly diverse family. Because of this, Ken’s books are naturally inclusive, and his distinctive style always manages to capture special moments between children and grown-ups.
