Wendy Orr has written more than two dozen children's books, including the first four books in the Rainbow Street Shelter series; Mokie and Bik; Ark in the Park; and Nim's Island. She lives with her family in Australia, near the sea.


Patricia Castelao was born in the rainy Santiago de Compostela, so she spent a lot of time drawing at home as a child. All that drawing led to her work on the Rainbow Street Shelter series and many other wonderful illustration projects.
