Aaron Blabey

Aaron Blabey's life doesn't make any sense.
                
He is most widely known for his well-loved, best-selling children's picture books for which he has won many awards including an INDIE Book Award for Children's Book of the Year, a Children's Book Council of Australia - Book of the Year Award, a NSW Premiers Literary Award for Children's Literature, two Australian Book Design Awards, two KOALA Awards, two YABBA Awards and a Children's Peace Literature Award.
             
He is the creator of two series for children - The Bad Guys and Pig the Pug - that have been translated into many languages and are published in over 25 countries including the USA, the UK, Canada, France, Germany, Netherlands, Norway, India, Turkey, China, Japan, South Korea and Brazil, just to name a few. He's also been the National Literacy Ambassador and is a proud supporter for the Alannah and Madeline Foundation.
                    
But dig a little deeper and his past gets quite shady.
                    
He spent 13 years as an actor appearing in numerous plays, TV shows and films. He was regularly cast opposite proper actors like Hugh Jackman, Jacki Weaver, Guy Pearce, Bryan Brown, Joel Edgerton and Ben Mendelsohn, all of whom were too kind to ever point out that his own acting was "just…awful", as he describes it today. To his continuing bewilderment though, he did once win an ACCTA Award (AFI) for Best Actor, a fact that cannot be adequately explained.
                      
To complicate matters, he worked for a time as a staff writer at a major global advertising agency where he "learned a great deal and wished for death every single day", before spending a couple of years attempting to teach 'Creative Thinking' at a prominent Sydney design college. Furthermore, he's exhibited his art in various galleries, spent some time as a grape picker, worked in a video store and - astonishingly - once modeled clothes in a glossy weekend supplement.
                     
He lives these days in a beautiful town in the Blue Mountains with his preposterously short wife and their two gorgeous boys, where he creates books, listens to his beloved vinyl record collection through killer 70s speakers and celebrates loudly every fifteen minutes that one of his all-time, top-ten heroes - Nick Cave - recently chose to record one of his books. 
               
All of this is true.

  • So great

    by on

    We've read this book about 1000 times so far - my 2.5 year old especially loves the bit where 'his face was awash with biscuits and dribble' :) Pig is terrible and incorrigible but of course that makes him even more lovable!

  • A winner in our house

    by on

    Anything with Pig the Pug and his poor little friend Trevor is a winner in our house. As always I love the endings in these books. My 20 month old loves this one!

  • Wonderful Book for Son + Mom

    by on

    My 2-year-old son simply loves this book. So does mum secretly. The illustrations are wonderful. You just have to love Pig for just being so boisterous and Trevor the sausage dog for being so patient. They remind me of my own two dogs. Every time I bring out this book to read, my sons goes all happy! Would recommend this book.
