Rebecca Young

After studying English and Children’s Literature, Rebecca Young began working in children’s book publishing as an editor. She loves working with words and pictures as both an editor and an author. Rebecca’s first picture book, Button Boy (illustrated by Sue deGennaro), was listed as a Notable Book for the 2012 Children’s Book Council of Australia Awards and has been published internationally. When she is not reading, writing or editing children’s books, Rebecca is watching movies, scribbling lists, pleating dumplings, braving the garden, listening to bluegrass, or rearranging furniture. The Skunk with No Funk (2014) is her first title with Walker Books Australia.
