About the Illustrator: Aaron Wolf

Born in Canada, I have just recently relocated from Sydney to Melbourne to join the team at Playtime as an illustrator.  My passion has always been creating worlds and the characters that inhabit these lands, so to be illustrating these books is a dream come true.  Something I have wanted to do since I was a little child, creating my own books and comics.

“A fun-filled ride from new author MrChipz who has captured the enjoyment for children to read along with and laugh… Well done..” Colin, Indie Book reviewer
