Krys Saclier is an electoral educator who has taught thousands of children from around Australia how to vote. Krys has written for television, radio and the press and is a qualified primary school teacher.

Cathy Wilcox has been drawing cartoons since she was old enough to scratch the furniture. She earned her letters at Art College and was eventually taken in by the Sydney Morning Herald. There, she churns out cartoons almost daily since 1989, pausing only to procreate, make cups of tea and collect cartooning awards.
