About Picco Puppy

G’day, welcome to Picco Puppy!

My name’s Michael (@PiccoPuppy), and I’m a Chinese-English-Australian. I live with my wonderful wife of eighteen years, and two beautiful boys, ten and fifteen. We live in the quiet, leafy Sydney suburb of Killara, New South Wales, Australia.

I am the author of I Wish You Happiness, a multi award-winning, children’s book. This beautifully illustrated picture book is diverse and inclusive, offering loving and inspirational wishes to empower children to be the best they can be.

I ran a successful Kickstarter campaign for the book, in June, 2020. A total of 187 generous backers pledged AU$8,739 for 400 copies of the beautiful hardcover.

I Wish You Happiness has sold thousands of copies since its release on November 20, 2020. Discover why so many teachers, grandparents, parents, librarians, and children’s book authors are love, recommend, and give the book as gifts to loved ones.
