Zadie's sick and tired of being ignored and is definitely running away—just as soon as she finds her missing stripey sock!


Barbara Nye:
A visual artist originally from Texas, Barbara Nye has lived in Australia for over 30 years. She makes her home in lush subtropical southeast Queensland and spends every spare minute in her studio creating art inspired by the vivid colors of nature and by the simple rhythms of life. Barbara is the author-illustrator of Somewhere a Bell is Ringing, a bedtime picture book inspired by her world travels. It is a 2018 Paterson Prize for Books for Young People Honor Book. Barbara's childhood on a Texas farm as the seventh of eleven children inspired her to write and illustrate Zadie and the Stripey Sock, which presents a light-hearted look at a child's ordeal so common in big families: the struggle to be heard amid the chaos of busy family life.
