Arthur P Charles:
banker, businessman and now author. Creator of Poucher for his grandchildren living in America. His own childhood, growing up in country NSW is the well from which he has plumbed the background information and added the colorful characters – Poucher and his friends. Truthfully he was sent away to a ‘posh’ school for his teenage years, many of the incidents are drawn from life and the rest played out in his amazing imagination.
visual artist and now children’s book illustrator. Matching the personalities of the characters to the watercolour illustrations was the major challenge. Having a background which included guiding children at the Art Gallery of NSW, her own children and now grandchildren Kate’s interpretation is one that has appeal.
