Author Bio

About the Author

LateshaLatesha Randall (Tesh) and her fiancé Seb live in the sunny-seaside-surf town of Raglan, on the west coast of New Zealand.

She has loved writing since she was old enough to realise that letters strung together could make words, and self-published her first children’s story, ‘Button Thief’, at 19. Tesh enjoys sniffing out good stories as a freelancer for a number of magazines, and is also known around town as ‘Mrs Coconut’ – spending most of her days making Raglan Coconut Yoghurt with Mr Coconut to supply stores across the country.

Like Abigail, Tesh has an extensive collection of hats and brightly coloured clothes … she hopes that this story inspires children (and adults!) to be playful and express themselves without any fear of judgment.

About the Illustrator

EstherEsther Tattersall (nee Griffiths), her husband Daniel and their three young children live in the friendly city of Whangarei in Northland, New Zealand. Her kids are in the throes of a dress-up craze, which means she’s constantly picking up pieces of discarded costume or reminding Batman to take off his shoes when he comes inside. Esther can often be found joining in with their adventures – making Viking shields, sewing super-hero capes or vacuuming in a tutu and hard-hat.

This is the second children’s book that Esther has illustrated for Latesha.

Beauty and wonder win the day in this delightful story about the importance of being true to yourself. Dress-up divas everywhere (and their mums) will love it.
