Simon Mitchel


Simon writes stories for young people that are fast-paced, funny and a little bit quirky.
His books include the historical adventure Do You dare? Tough Times 1931, the mouth-watering picture book Louie the Pirate Chef and the hilarity-packed Baked Bean Bandit series.
Simon’s funny and inspiring author talks are guaranteed to get kids writing.
He’ll talk about his journey to becoming an author, how to come up with new ideas for stories, and why writers are a bit like superheroes.
Simon can also show older students how to use research to add depth to their writing.

In Memory of Rob Leonard, Our Founder

It is with great sadness that the Board of Directors, staff, and myself from the Children’s Charity Network must inform you of the passing of our founder, Mr Rob Leonard, following a 14-month battle with Cancer. We pass our condolences to Rob’s friends and family at this terrible time.

Rob was a wonderful, caring man with a passion for service and charity. His vision to influence young Australians through literacy 25 years ago has impacted thousands, who will all be saddened by this news. In honour of Rob, I look forward to growing his vision and continuing to advocate for the value of literacy and arts.

Please take a moment to reflect upon Rob’s impact on you, and remember his uncompromising belief in the power of Art and Writing.

Rob, you will be truly missed but never far away from our thoughts. 

May Rob’s memory be a blessing.
