Dave ‘Cartoon Dave’ Hackett has taught his no rules brand of cartooning to over 250,000 children in schools and libraries on four continents.

A popular television personality in Australia for over twenty years, Dave has appeared on too many shows to mention. He regularly appeared on the D isney Channel, Toasted TV, It ’s Academic and CheeZ tv. His cartooning pages and strips have been featured in newspapers and magazines across the country.

Dave has written and illustrated over 23 picture books, cartooning books, and novels. His books engage all ages from early primary through to young adult. He has drawn for every type of human and every situation imaginable – from coal miners and garbage trucks to 5-star French restaurants, zoos and some kid’s tattoo.

Dave now lives in the south of France with his wife, writer-translator Miranda Richmond Mouillot. He is part owner of one emotionally complex geriatric cat, knows more about 1980s pop music than any grown man should, and he likes pickled onions. A lot.
