Matt Cosgrove

Matt Cosgrove is the author and illustrator of the exciting new book series Epic Fail Tales. These totally disgusting, yet completely awesome, retellings of classic fairy tales with a twist include Snow Man and the Seven Ninjas, Attack of the Giant Robot Zombie Mermaid and, coming soon, Little Stunt Riding Hood. Guaranteed no sloppy kissing, no handsome princes and no happily ever after! In a long and varied career, Cosgrove has been the creative director of Australian fashion magazine Marie Claire, lecturer in comic art at Western Sydney University and one of the guys who drew the catch phrases for the TV show Burgo’s Catch Phrase (really!). He has illustrated many picture books, collaborating with industry legends such as Jackie French and Glenda Millard. He has also campaigned tirelessly for the inclusion of Pictionary as an Olympic sport (not really – but he definitely should).
