Jolly Read

Jolly Read is a journalist and author who lives in South Fremantle.

Her latest book Can a Quokka Quack? is about the unique little Rottnest Island marsupial that has become famous the world over for being the happiest wild animal on the planet.

Jolly can just make out Rottnest Island from her verandah (but not the quokkas!).

Her other works include Kangkushot, the Life of Nyamal Lawman, Peter Coppin, shortlisted for the WA Premier Book Awards, and the play Yandy, which won a WA Premier Book Award for best script.
