Janet McLean


Janet is a kindergarten teacher. She and Andrew have won popularity and acclaim for their picture books.

Janet grew up in Essendon, an outer Melbourne suburb. As a child she loved reading and enjoyed browsing through the books in her father’s extensive library. She spent many hours with the neighbourhood children making up and acting out stories, and producing plays and circuses. Working with young children over the past thirty years has been an inspiration to Janet as a writer.
