Bookmarks: Kimberly Andrews

From Afternoons, 2:21 pm on 19 June 2019

Today's Bookmarks guest is an illustrator, geologist, biologist, she knows her butterflies pretty well, she's a big fan of orangutans and she lives in a tiny house made from a 40ft container in Wellington's Days Bay with her husband and baby daughter. 

Kimberly Andrews is a finalist in two categories of the New Zealand Book Awards for her children's book, Puffin the Architect. Her illustrations caught the eye of the publishers for Joy Cowley's Song of the River, first published 25 years ago, and they asked Kimberly to illustrate it for a re-release.
