Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Mem Fox, AM (born Merrion Frances Partridge on March 5, 1946) is an Australian writer of children's books and an educationalist specialising in literacy. Fox is semi-retired and lives in Adelaide with her husband and dog. In 1981, while working in drama, Fox decided to retrain in literacy studies. She said: "Literacy has become the great focus of my life - it's my passion, my battle and my mission and my exhaustion." She has published books on literacy aimed at children, their parents and teachers and educators. She held the position of Associate Professor, Literacy Studies, in the School of Education at Flinders University until her retirement in 1996. Since her retirement from teaching, Fox travels around the world visiting many countries and doing presentations and speaking on children's books and literacy issues.show more
