Authors » Michael Thompson
Michael has drawn pictures for as long as he can remember. His Grade 2 teacher showed him how to make a picture book and he has been thinking about them (and collecting them) on and off ever since. His parents still have his first book, How the Rabbit got its Long Ears, hidden away somewhere (where it should stay!).
Michael has always liked bears (doesn’t everyone?) and still has his first teddy bear, which looks like the ones in this book, but brown. Michael was born and raised in Perth, Western Australia where he now lives with his wife and new baby girl.
