Working with Unicef and Save the Children, she met thousands of kids around the world who helped inspired the book If You Come to Earth (September 2020, Chronicle Books), a letter from a child to a visitor from outer space, explaining the world. She grew up in Australia but now divides her time between Brooklyn, and Hobart, New York.
