Little Monsters

It’s that time of year in Brisbane again. Festival season. Every time I turn around, there’s another writer’s event to attend. Cocktail parties, conferences, dinners, talks, debates and everything in between. Not that you’ll find me complaining – any excuse to mingle with others passionate about children’s literature – but I may be a little quiet on this blog over the next week. You can be sure that when I do get back I’ll have plenty to talk about…

In the meantime, I’ll leave you with some images from my latest picture book project: a few little monsters who have literally been running riot around my mind.

    They are adorable – how could you not love them little critters running amok in your head? Fingers crossed for you for CYA. C U Soon.

    Ooh, they look even more gorgeous now that they have colour! I want my own Muddle with a floaty ring :-)

    Thanks guys! I always loved pool toys – I had a dragon / horse floaty thing when I was six that’s obviously been sitting in my subconscious ever since.
