:
"Little one, / whoever you are, / wherever you are, / there are little ones / just like you / all over the world." So begins the Australian author Mem Fox's joyful picture book Whoever You Are, a celebration of the world's diverse cultures, both our similarities and differences. Leslie Straub's innovative, colorful, folk art-style oil paintings of children from all corners of the globe are bordered with photographs of hand-carved, bejeweled frames-and they all reflect Fox's message that no matter where we come from, within our hearts "Joys are the same, / and love is the same. / Pain is the same, / and blood is the same." A gem!

PRODUCT DETAIL

Mem Fox

Australian writer, Mem Fox was born on March 5th, 1946 in Melbourne. At the age of six months, she and her parents who were missionaries moved to Zimbabwe and she attended the mission school there. At the age of eighteen, she left Zimbabwe and attended a drama school in London. She eventually returned to Australia where she was a college professor. She held the position as Associate Professor, Literacy Studies, in the School of Education at Flinders University, South Australia. Fox is considered Australia's most popular children's author. Her title "Possum Magic," a title dedicated to her daughter, is the best-selling picture book in Australia. It was also named a Highly Commended Book by the Children's Book Council of Australia and Best Children's Book in the 1984 New South Wales Premier's Literary Awards. "Night Noises" was a Notable Children's Book in Language Arts, and a 1990 Horn Book Fanfare selection. It was also named by Redbook magazine as one of the ten best picture books of 1989. Other titles written by Fox include "Wilfrid Gordon McDonald Partridge," "Time for Bed," "Koala Lou," and "Wombat Divine." Fox has written over twenty picture books for children and several others for adults. Other awards received by Fox include the 1990 Dromkeen Medal for distinguished services to children's literature, a 1991 Advance Australia Award for her outstanding contribution to Australian literature and a medal in the 1993 Australia Day Honours awards for services to the cultural life of Australia. Although writing is her profession now, teaching is her first love. In addition to writing, she is an international literacy consultant who is in great demand to speak at literacy conferences nationally and internationally.
