Kylie Howarth is an award-winning graphic designer and artist from Perth, Western Australia. She was raised in the country alongside her brother, dog, sheep, several orphaned kangaroos and one very cheeky echidna. Kylie’s obsession with animals also extends under water as she has braved lionfish in Egypt, piranhas and pink dolphins in the Amazon, marine iguanas and hammerhead sharks in the Galapagos Islands, and swum with whale sharks and manta rays at Ningaloo. She is the author and illustrator of children’s picture books Fish Jam, Chip and 1, 2, Pirate Stew. The Fish Kid books are her first with Walker Books Australia.


Highly recommended. The story is a fast moving and an enjoyable read and links well with the first in the series


Easy to read and heaps of fun, Fish Kid and the Mega Manta Ray is recommended for junior readers who love adventure, super powers and the sea.
