Author(s): Antje Taylor; Matt Howorth (Illustrator)
Antje Taylor was born and raised in Germany. She moved to Australia over 10 years ago and now lives in Brisbane with her husband Craig and her two young children, Lars and Pip. When she is not a mum, Antje works as a management consultant. She enjoys travelling, outrigger canoeing, spending time on the beach, and reading books - both for herself or to her children. The idea of Friends Don't Like Roaring came to her when watching her son at the playground, not knowing how to talk and interact with other children and hence, roaring at them. After telling Lars a story about a roaring dinosaur, Antje put it down on paper and Lap the little dinosaur came to life.
