Caroline Magerl; author, artist, illustrator and print-maker. Caroline immigrated to Australia as a young girl and spent the majority of her childhood at sea on her parents’ yacht sailing the east coast of Australia. This lifestyle accommodated little in the way of possessions, and so she especially treasured the East German picture books gifted her by her Great Oma; “the two languages of imagery and words whose interplay had a profound impact on me”. Caroline now lives on the Sunshine Coast of Queensland, Australia, with her husband and daughter.

Rose and the Wish Thing, Caroline’s first Children’s book, received a grant from the Australia Council for the Arts facilitated by the Australian Society of authors; its illustrations were also exhibited at the prestigious Chris Beetles gallery in St. James London, UK. You can view a trailer for Rose and the Wish Thing on YouTube! Rose and the Wish Thing will be reprinted by DoubleDay, USA in 2016, and is currently published by Penguin Australia under “Hasel and Rose.”
