Gillian Candler is the award-winning author of 11 books for children about New Zealand nature, published by Potton & Burton. Her most recent books include: “Whose Home is This?” illustrated by Fraser Williamson, which was a finalist in the 2019 New Zealand Book Awards for Children and Young Adults and “New Zealand Nature Heroes” published in November this year.
When she’s not writing books, she’s out and about exploring nature and volunteering on conservation projects or visiting schools and sharing her passion for New Zealand’s wildlife with children.
About “Whose Home is This?” and others in this series:
“For me, these books have it all. They’re beautiful, interactive, thoughtfully written, include respectful use of te reo Māori, and increase children’s scientific skills and knowledge. Get hold of all three.” Thalia Kehoe Rowden, The Sapling 2018
