Peter Carnavas grew up in Brisbane and on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland. He later became a primary school teacher and taught at Clermont State School. It was during his time as a teacher that Peter began to immerse himself in picture books and take his storytelling a little more seriously.
Peter’s first book, Jessica’s Box, was published in 2008. It was shortlisted for the 2008 Queensland Premier’s Literary Award and the 2009 CBCA Crichton Award for Emerging Illustrators. He has since written and illustrated many picture books, which have been translated into languages such as German, Italian, Portuguese and Dutch.
Peter lives on the Sunshine Coast with his wife, two daughters and a scruffy dog that occasionally escapes.
