About Andy Griffiths:

Andy Griffiths is one of the most popular children's authors in Australia. He has written 33 books, including nonsense verse, short stories, comic novels and plays. His books have been New York Times bestsellers, won 80 children's choice awards, been adapted as a television cartoon series and sold more than 12 million copies in Australia. He is best known as the author of the JUST! series, The Day My Bum Went Psycho and the bestselling Treehouse series.

In 2008 Andy became the first Australian author to win six children's choice awards in one year for Just Shocking.

In 2008 Andy and his wife Jill collaborated with The Bell Shakespeare Company on the popular and critically acclaimed theatrical production 'Just Macbeth!' which was nominated for two Helpmann Awards. In July 2010 'Just Macbeth!' completed a return sold-out season at the Sydney Opera House before heading to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. The book of the play was shortlisted for the 2010 Prime Minister's Literary Awards.

Andy has had a long-standing collaboration with the multi-talented illustrator Terry Denton. Readers who want to sneak behind the scenes to see Andy and Terry's creative partnership can dive into Once Upon a Slime. This book aims to ignite the writer inside by offering story ideas and zany activities.

In 2011 Andy and Terry started a new series that has captivated audiences across the country, smashed sales records and won industry awards.

The much-loved Treehouse series has been embraced by children around the world and is now published in more than 35 countries.

Andy is an ambassador for The Indigenous Literacy Foundation and the Pyjama Foundation, and was awarded the Dromkeen Medal in 2015 to honour his outstanding contribution to Australian children's literature.
