What a joy it was to work with Andy Joyner on this book--his illustrations are just astonishing, detailed, delightfully retro and so emotive. He's perfectly captured our Aussie kids through the years, including all they loved to do, play, eat, watch and read.
To celebrate, we are giving away a signed (by Tania) copy of the book and an original--yes, you read it right--an ORIGINAL artwork by Andy.
This artwork is a full sketch of the final scene in the book (Year 2000 and beyond) and it could be yours!
Are you peeping with glee?
To enter this comp, all you need to do is have a child aged 12 or under colour in this fabulous colouring sheet (below). Add the child's name, age, email address and postal address (Australian addresses only) and either post it to me at PO Box 171, Jerrabomberra NSW 2619 or email it to me booksATtaniamccartney.com.
I will choose a winner--and let's just say I love bright and colourful! Entries close Saturday 31 October at midnight, and the winner will be announced right here early November.
Please note: entries without contact details will be ineligible. This is a game of skill not chance. The judge's decision is final and no correspondence will be entered into. (Sorry--to run a comp, you have to put all that guff.)
I'm looking forward to seeing your entries!
PS: You can read a Mike Shuttleworth review of the book right here.
