Author description

Alison Lester grew up on a farm by the sea in eastern Victoria. My Farm is the story of the year she got a palomino pony for Christmas. Trick-riding horses, mustering cattle, training the dog, competing at the local show, feeding calves, picking mushrooms, raising a baby wombat, building cubbies, cutting hay, swimming ponies in the dam, hypnotizing chooks... all the activities through the seasons are depicted with child-like mischief and humour.Alison Lester was Australia's Children's Laureate in 2012 and 2013. She was awarded the 2016 Dromkeen Medal to honour her outstanding contribution to Australian children's literature.
