About the Author
Dr Kirsten Hunter is a clinical psychologist and author, who for 21 years has had the great fortune of child clients letting her into their worlds to hear their struggles, confusion and joy. Squish represents these thousands of children who have shared their world with her, and now hopefully Squish can relate to and help thousands more. With relatable illustrations from Emma Moorman, a talented young adult with and advocate for Autism, this Squish Book Series beautifully and lovingly delivers advanced psychological skills to children.
“We are all in this together; let’s start some vulnerable and brave conversations.”
About the Illustrator
Emma Moorman is an Australian-born artist from Toowoomba. Ever since she was little, she loved to draw. It’s been her escape from how overwhelming the world can be – and having grown up with autism, that escape has been vital. It has always been her dream to share her art with the world, and these books are her first step.
“I love working with pencil and paper, with some digital work as well. As a child I only worked in black and white, I’m now learning that it’s okay to use a bit of colour! These illustrations connect with my experiences growing up. I hope to connect with you through each picture.”
