LISA VAN DER WIELEN
My name is Lisa Van der Wielen and I am an author of children's books. I am also a primary school teacher and a mum to two beautiful girls. I have always been lucky enough to call the sunny city of Perth, Western Australia, my home.
I am passionate about working with children and have always had a love for writing, so those things combined have lead me to become a children's author.
Here is a list of my published books... with 2019 a BIG YEAR here in book publishing.

Aqua Dog (2019)

My love for the beach, nature, dogs, gardening, food, family and the importance of virtues.... provide me with inspiration to write children's books. I endeavour to write fun stories that inspire children to learn, laugh and enjoy the magic of reading.

Vegetarian Polony is the debut Children's book by Lisa Van der Wielen.
When the animals discover the reason pigs are on the farm.
An adventure begins full of animal charm.
Collaboration and working as a team.

Luna Lucy is a charming, rhyming tale about the phases of the moon. The educational book has been beautifully illustrated by Joseph Hopkins.
The sequel; Luna Lucy and the planets is due out in 2019.
A girl called Lucy and her dog Neptune, develop a love for watching the moon.
A quest begins about the Luna phase, discovering the moon in so many ways.
Luna Lucy is a fun, engaging tale that is beautifully illustrated with heart warming characters. It is an educational book about the phases of the moon that captures hearts. A great addition to the book collection of any youngster!
Check out the 5 STAR review from Readers' Favorite:
Aqua Dog is an endearing children's book about a farm dog that loves to swim. Alison Mutton has captured the West Australian Wheatbelt setting beautifully in her illustrations along with the cheeky and determined border collie character called Aqua. The lovely message in the story make this book a must read for children and adults.
Aqua the farm dog really loves to swim.
Sometimes the famer gets angry at him.
Instead of herding sheep he loves to splash.
Diving under water in a flash.
When the rain begins to fall and the water levels rise.
A lesson is learnt of immeasurable size.
When a flood puts his talents to the test,
Is swimming what Aqua Dog does best?
The Life of GUS
THE RONALD MCDONALD HOUSE DOG
I have teamed up with the super talented Perth Illustrator Stacey Fraticelli and Graphic Designer Alison Mutton to create a book about Gus, the resident dog at the Ronald McDonald house here in Perth. I'm honoured to be involved in such a wonderful cause and worthy charity.
At the Ronald McDonald House here in Perth,
Lives the friendliest dog on this earth.
He's special, he's smart, he's really kind -
The most amazing dog you'll ever find!
Gus asks one favour (with a big thank you):
To buy his book - or maybe two!
This gift of kindness will overflow,
As off to charity all the proceeds go!
