WIN! original artwork from This is Captain Cook!

The lovely Christina Booth has agreed to give away one of her beautiful original artworks from the book! She sooo lovely! Value: priceless.

BOOK:
I'd like to voyage to Scandanavia to explore the snowy environment in the hope of discovering a mammoth preserved in ice and time or to the outback and find a new dinosaur in an archaelogical dig!

Art: Jackie French for her passion for children’s literacy, education, the environment and wildlife. Her colourful life would make for a great tale, her inclusiveness and support for the underprivileged teaches us compassion, her demonstration that we can live in harmony with nature teaches respect and then there’s the wombats!

Book: We would love to travel to the Cook Islands. Miss 9 is obsessed with Captain Cook, I am now going deaf just from the squealing while looking at your book launch. She wants to visit the Cook Islands as they are named after Captain Cook. :)

I would love to travel to an archaelogical dig whether it is the Australian outback or Scandanavian snow - to discover something or explore unknown territory like Captain Cook would be thrilling!

ART: Dame Nellie Melba — an Australian opera singer (the stage name ‘Melba’ referring to Melbourne). She created a music school, raised money for war charities and was the first Australian to appear on the cover of Time magazine. She had a dessert named after her!

ART: David Unaipon. Famous Aboriginal writer, preacher and inventor. I think seeing a school play about how he invented a helicopter from the design of a boomerang would be fascinating. And how he was chosen to be on our current $50 Note.

Book - My family would love to voyage to New Zealand. Fresh, crisp air, gorgeous, natural scenery and (with littlies on deck) not a long journey! :)

BOOK: By hook or by Cook I would love a copy of this book! I would love to sail with Captain Cook to wherever his starry navigation took us. Hopefully it would be an undiscovered piece of the world which I could name Cooktopia or even Terra Leonieus.

ART: School Play about Saint Mary MacKillop - Australia's First Saint. I walked in her footsteps once as a tourist and teacher, and her story is full of courage, inspiration and strength. "Never see a need without doing something about it" is her motto and one everyone can live by.

ART: I think a play about Bennelong would be interesting.. From his first contact with First Fleeter's, to his experience of travelling to England and finally returning home 3yrs later..
