About the Author

Frank Woodley

Frank Woodley is built from funny - it's in his bones. Whether he's being a comedian, clown, actor or acrobat, he is constantly creating characters and worlds to engage audiences of all ages.

Since emerging from the acclaimed duo Lano and Woodley in 2006, Frank has created four new stage shows and his own ABC series Woodley - created by, written, produced and starring Frank as the title character opposite Justine Clarke. He has written a successful stage show for children, Noodlenut, and in 2018 is touring significantly with the first Lano and Woodley show in over 12 years, FLY.

Although Frank continues to perform on stage, he has also turned his immense talent to children's books, writing and illustrating his first books: Kizmet and the Case of the Tassie Tiger, Kizmet and the Case of the Smashed Violin and Kizmet and the Case of the Pirate Treasure.
