Leisa Stewart-Sharpe is a journalist turned children’s author who grew up in Australia. She has traveled and adventured all over the world. Leisa has come face-to-face with an aye-aye in the Madagascan jungle, sweated across the grasslands of Kenya (chased by a herd of elephants!), and has snorkeled with sharks Down Under. Today Leisa writes children’s books from a shed in her English garden, including her bestselling nonfiction books. All of her books have one thing in common: they’re about wild animals in wild places and written for wild children.
