About the Author
Australian author Alison Lester is perhaps best known for her picture books. However, she captivated her audience with her first novel, The Quicksand Pony. In a starred review, School Library Journal called it "a gripping adventure story, a tale of survival, an engaging mystery, a touching animal story, and a family saga."
"Lester's clever text and creature-crammed illustrations will certainly encourage young imaginations to wander." Publishers Weekly
