About the Authors

Justin Ractliffe

Justin worked at Random House Australia and ran many successful and award-winning campaigns during his time there.

He has two young daughters and got the idea for the book from watching all the different types of dads dropping their kids off at school.

DADS: A Field Guide is his first children's book.

Cathie Glassby

After a decade working in the music industry, Cathie Glassby's illustrations have emerged from her love of music, pop culture, vintage posters and fashion.

Her work has led her to be selected as one of a stable of artists to contribute to iconic Australian brand Mambo, and the Australian artist run collective Art Park, with her artwork included in clothing ranges, exhibitions and publications.

In 2008 Cathie was nominated as one of the world's most exciting female illustrators by illustration almanac Curvy.

Dads - A Field Guide is her first children's book.
