Jackie French

By JOL Admin | 24 August 2012

Jackie French grew up in Brisbane, although she now lives in New South Wales.  She is a prolific author and has produced approximately 150 books to date. 

Notable titles include Diary of a Wombat, Hitler's Daughter and Flood which was produced in response to the 2011 Queensland floods.

State Library of Queensland owns the artwork for the cover image of Flood.  Illustrator Bruce Whately says in these teachers' notes that he wanted the whole book to look wet.  To achieve that effect the paintings were done in acrylics, used very thinly so that they would run and drip.
