Dad is waiting for the wet season to end so Yellow Truck Road Train can get back to work.

There are cattle and donkeys to load, kangaroos to look out for, heat and dust, and always plenty to do.

Come aboard Yellow Truck Road Train and experience life in the outback and on the road!

Mandy Tootell lives in Katherine in the Northern Territory with her husband, a road train driver, and her two sons. They also have two horses, two pet cows and two black and white dogs on their rural block. Mandy completed a Bachelor of Visual Art from James Cook University and a Bachelor of Education from Queensland University of Technology before taking off overseas to travel for a couple of years.

Originally from the Whitsundays, Mandy has lived in Townsville, Brisbane, Bristol, London, Charters Towers, Darwin, and now Katherine. Although Mandy is primarily a printmaker, she enjoys a range of art-making. She is handy with scissors and a glue stick, and keeps visual journals for inspiration with a focus on natural surroundings including animals, birds and the Northern Territory culture and environment. Yellow Truck Road Train is her first book.
