stripey the emu

Wendy is an author, illustrator and publisher of children’s picture books.

The hugely popular ‘Stripey’ the emu chick features in 3 of her books plus an activity book. The cute character has his own plush toy and has been the star of several theatre productions and plays across Australia. He has also featured on a range of Maxwell and Williams mugs, as well as many other products.

The first in the series, ‘Where’s Stripey?’, went on to win the prestigious Western Australian Premier’s Book Awards, Children’s Category. It has to date sold in excess of 150, 000 copies, making it a huge best seller. The second book: ‘Scrambled egg’ was short listed in the same award. 'Invisible Me' is the third in the series, and Wendy is embarking on a much-waited 4th adventure in 2022.

Each book has a useful information section at the back which gives fascinating facts about emus and other animals featured in the books. Teachers and parents have found these pages together with the ‘Stripey Activity Book’ to be useful in helping children to gain the most enjoyment and benefit from reading the books. The books are often used as part of the curriculum on Australian animals. There are also videos, colouring and activities for teachers and parents on the home page.

Wendy also conducts author visits at schools and libraries, further enhancing the children’s experience. All three books are suitable for ages 2 to 12.

Wendy’s latest book, ‘The BOO-book’ is written by Jennifer Mars and illustrated and published by Wendy. Wendy illustrated this book during Perth’s pandemic lockdown of 2020, when her whole business closed for 4 months. Suddenly Wendy had guilt-free time to concentrate on this very different book which stretched her skills.

All of Wendy’s self-published books are proudly designed and printed in Fremantle Western Australia.
