Phil Lesnie

Phil Lesnie is a Sydney-based illustrator of children's books. He is also a children's bookseller. It is entirely possible that he hasn't read a title written for adults since he became one. He is the illustrator of Feathers, which was shortlisted for the Prime Minister's Literary Awards in 2018, and Miss Franklin which will be released in July, 2019. His first three books were CBCA Notable Books in 2015, 2016 and 2018. But his first cat, Cassidy, is notable all of the time
