- It don't mean a thing if it ain't got that swing. Welcome to my blog about children's book illustration, poetry, animals, vegetables ... OK, maybe I should stop there. I’m an artist in Hobart, Tasmania. I've just illustrated 'The Smallest Carbon Footprint in the Land' by Anne Morgan, and am currently illustrating two picture books about traditional life in Sudan. If you'd like to see more, please visit my linked folio page, view my profile at The Australian Society of Authors, or email me at email@example.com. Thank you!

For Illustration Friday, and also an upcoming book reading by members of the Children's Book Council of Australia, featuring books about chickens - here's a hen getting excited about a book. This was inspired by one of the few jokes I can remember, about a chicken who keeps coming into a library and saying: 'Book, book, book.' The librarian selects books, but can't keep up with the chicken's demands. Finally the librarian follows the chicken and finds it giving the books to a frog, who grumbles: 'Reddit, reddit, reddit.'
