Audrey can't wait to get into the tiny town of Beltana. It's full of amazing things - little trains, glass windows and a shop that sells lollies. But when Mum gets sick. Audrey and her little brother Dougie must stay alone wit Mrs Paterson. And Mrs Paterson is a strict old lady who looks like a burnt stick! Audrey soon starts to think that even a town full of people can't stop you feeling lonely.

Over 35 years, Ann James has collaborated with many authors, illustrating picture books that almost always feature animals! In fact, her own pets are characters in The Midnight Gang; Dog In, Cat Out; The Way I Love You and Chester and Gil.
Ann's playful approach to illustrating is evident in her choice of media and techniques. Some of her memorable picture-book characters are in Lucy Goosey; I'm a Dirty Dinosaur; I'm a Hungry Dinosaur; Bird and Bear and Bird and Bear and the Special Day.
She looks forward to readers getting to know Samantha and Sebastian in A Very Quacky Christmas! Ann lives in Melbourne, where she and her partner run Books Illustrated, a gallery specialising in promoting picture books and their creators.
