Phil Cummings


Phil Cummings is an award winning author who developed a love of children’s literature when working as a teacher. It was during this time that Phil decided to write a children’s book. He soon discovered that it wasn’t easy and after seven years of rejection, Phil’s first book ‘Goodness Gracious!’, illustrated by Craig Smith, was published by Omnibus/Penguin in 1989. Since that time Phil has written over sixty books for children. His most recent titles include ‘Echidna Jim Went For A Swim’, ‘Be Brave Pink Piglet’, ‘Anzac Biscuits’, ‘Ride, Ricardo, Ride!’, ‘Bridie’s Boots,’ and ‘Boy’.
