Gus Gordon is an author and illustrator. He writes books about motorbike riding stunt chickens and dogs that live in trees. He is clearly unstable. Gus lives with his wife and three kids on the Northern beaches of Sydney where he has written and illustrated over 60 books for children. Gus grew up on a farm in northern NSW and, after leaving school, worked on cattle stations all over Australia before deciding to pursue a drawing career. He moved to Sydney and studied at the Julian Ashton School of Art. He illustrated his first children’s book, The Trouble with Parents by Dianne Bates in 1996 and has since illustrated many books for many publishers. Some of these books include; The ‘S’ Word by James Roy, To The Moon and Back by Jackie French, The Dirt Experiment and The Joke Trap by Richard Glover, the ‘So Series’ by J A Mawter, various \\\'Aussie Bites and Nibbles\\\' including Ruff and Tumble by Mary Small, Born to Bake by Phillip Gwynne, Sing, Pepi Sing by Jen Storer and A Home For Gnomes by Margaret Clark. His latest books are; The Undys; a series of books by Michael Wagner, The Baked Bean Bandit by Simon Mitchell and the soon to be published books, Haggis McGregor & the Night of the Skull Moon by Jen Storer and My Aussie Dad by Yvonne Morrison. Gus also does a bit of writing. His first book was a picture book called A Day With Noodles, released in 2008. His most recent was a picture book about a chicken named ‘Wendy’ called, strangely enough, Wendy. This was released in August 2009. When Gus is not writing or drawing he’s usually at the beach or listening to music or being chased by a small child. He also believes beetroot is the root of all evil.
