So thrilled to see Macca The Alpaca on a list of kids books recommended by the new Australian Children's Laureate, Morris Gleitzman, in The Sun Herald this past weekend. Amazing to be mentioned in such great company. Thank you Morris (and your bookseller friends!).
Super excited to finally reveal the cover for my brand new picture book "Macca the Alpaca". Written and illustrated by me. Published by Scholastic. Available in all good bookstores February 1st 2018.
Here's what it says on the back of the book:
'Macca is a small, kind and friendly alpaca. He spends his days splashing in puddles and chasing butterflies... until he runs head first into Harmer - a big, unkind llama who is never, ever friendly. Can brave little Macca teach that bully of a llama a very important lesson?'
(Spoiler alert. He can!)
It was so much fun dropping by The Morning Show On Seven in honour of Book Week and to prove that anyone can draw! If you can write the word YOU, then you can draw an alpaca!

A big thank you to Larry Emdur and Sarah Cummings for being super nice to me (and mighty fine artists as well.)
