I'm the author of "The Tweeting Galah" and "The Surfing Penguin". These collection of short stories teach children about how to navigate the online world in a safe and healthy way. Using Australian animals, the stories focus on different issues that may arise for children online, and how best to deal with them. The animals' stories and lessons are brought to life using interactive augmented reality technology, and reflection questions are included at the end of each story. To date, over 6,500 copies have been sold worldwide are are being used in 150 Australian schools.
