The story includes the characters coming together to celebrate the tradition of Stir-up Sunday. How is this event meaningful to you? My sister and I always used to celebrate Stir-up Sunday with our nan. Every year we made the puddings with Nan and she then used to give them out to all the family to share on Christmas Day. The illustrations have been consistently adorable throughout the Mr Darcy series by the talented Peter Carnavas. How do you find working with him? I love working with Peter. When he was creating Mr Collins he sent me a few rough sketches before finalising the character.
Most of it is left up to Peter. He is a genius. When I was doing my research I discovered that charity was at the heart of a Regency Christmas. I hope this comes across in the book. I still think it is an important part of Christmas. I have a few ideas for upcoming books in the series. Jane Austen has given me a wonderful array of characters to work with. For the moment I am going to enjoy the festive season with my children. This weekend we begin making the puddings!
Stir-up Sunday falls on November 23rd. Thank you so much for answering my questions for Boomerang Books, Alex! Wishing you and your family a safe and enjoyable Christmas! My pleasure. I wish you and all your readers a Happy Christmas. Interview by Romi Sharp www. As terrifying as that may sound, here are three fantastic new reads to lessen the impact. They are cheerfully Christmassy, are already, or destined to be classics and just perfect to start your countdown to Christmas in earnest with. Twenty-four excerpts, poems, and yuletide stories even carol lyrics are thoughtfully brought together in a magnificently presented hardback anthology.
Readers as young as seven will enjoy immersing themselves into this collection of traditional and contemporary tales but the real joy ignites when you spend each night with your child ren sharing the magic and anticipation of Christmas together. Koala Books imprint of Scholastic October My November Christmas to-do list often involves provisioning the pantry with more festive goodies than anyone can eat and making the Chrissy Pud, which is why Mr Darcy and the Christmas Pudding by Alex Field and Peter Carnavas is included on this countdown list.
The ineffable Mr Darcy adores Christmas and having mastered his former social ineptitude with the help of his friends in the previous picture books, Mr Darcy and Mr Darcy and the Dancing Duck , prepares to involve them in a splendid yuletide celebration. He invites his nearest and dearest over on Stir-up Sunday to help bake the Christmas pudding but is somewhat disconcerted by the unexpected presence of Mr Collins. As with all these titles, Mr Darcy and the Christmas Pudding draws deliciously on Christmas traditions, mode a la Austen and how the expectation of the big event is often sweeter, more satisfying and twice as exciting as the day itself.
Pride and Prejudice fans have another one their collections. Three to six year-olds will be begging to lick the pudding bowl. New Frontier Publishing November Another picture book that heralds the beginning of the festive season and is a definite keepsake for Christmases to come is Tea and Sugar Christmas by Jane Jolly and Robert Ingpen. This is less of a picture book and more of a beguiling glimpse into the yesteryear life of Kathleen, a young resident of a settlement town along the Nullarbor Plain rail link back in the days when the Tea and Sugar Train travelled from Port Augusta to Kalgoorlie once a week.
Chocolate could only be brought in winter when it was less likely to melt. Take the trip and find out for yourself. And as with all NLA publications, the fascinating factual inclusions ensure this is one of those special unexpected Christmas surprises you are sure to treasure. National Library of Australia November And stayed tuned for more fantastic pre-Chrissy posts guaranteed to keep you and your little ones inspired and excited and above all, well read!
His illustrations always showcase his talent in portraying beautiful expression and sensitivity. He also balances a perfect mix between detail and playfulness, and spreads that make a simple yet dramatic statement. I love how we are introduced to the characters. Immediately, they capture our attention.
Oliver sure is ready to play. George is a serious, spectacle-wearing bear. Oliver continues to pester George until at last he gets some attention. But is it the attention he wanted? And are both Oliver and George finally ready to play? How did the idea for Oliver and George come about? I was on the plane to Perth, scribbling away in my sketchbook.
I decided to add the cheeky Oliver character and, together with George, the two of them form a bit of a sibling relationship or, more likely, a parent-child relationship — the child bugging the parent to play, but the parent is always too busy. Are these characters based on anyone you know? I have! I was a quiet kid but very occasionally I snapped — much like George. Dad made me pay for the chair out of my pocket money. I also punched a boy in Grade One for snatching a book from me. My teacher smacked me and I never punched anyone again apart from my brother.
So, you are more like George than Oliver? I realise I am quite like George the bear. Tolerant… until somebody snatches a book from me. How long did it take you to write and illustrate Oliver and George? I received some advice from some teacher-librarians about the ending, which helped a lot.
Peter Carnavas Archives - The Boomerang Books Blog
The illustrations probably took a few months, over the summer. It changes all the time. At the moment I love drawing whales and penguins. My favourite part of drawing any animal is dressing them up a little and giving them human expressions with the slightest details — small eyebrows and things like that. What can us Peter Carnavas fans look forward to seeing from you in the near future? It will be out in early I look forward to its release! Article by Romi Sharp www. The Lucky Country. We embrace difference.
Celebrate diversity. Stand up for what we believe in. Be ourselves. Show compassion for those in need. The following picture books, as chosen for the Speech Pathology Australia Books of the Year shortlist, all share common themes; diversity, friendship and uniqueness. The Short Giraffe by Neil Flory, illustrations by Mark Cleary, is a fun, humorous story that highlights the importance of inclusion, especially when one feels like an outcast. Boba the baboon is photographing the tallest animals in the world; the giraffes. But there is a tiny problem, Geri the giraffe is the shortest giraffe ever and is not visible in the camera shot.
Instead of excluding Geri, the compassionate, accepting giraffes attempt various creative ways to bring him up to their height, all however leading to disastrous, yet comical circumstances. This whimsical story explores diversity of the mind, rather than physical appearance. Whilst the other birds peck at the ground, flock together, build nests, chirrup and hippity hop, Bea is most unusually baking biscuits, disco dancing, travelling the world in a hot air balloon, and bussing through the country. Engaging rhythm and action in the text, and pictures to reflect the same.
As he consistently attempts to scare his family members with frightening voices and ingenious outfits, his efforts prove superfluous. Jonathan unexpectedly meets and befriends a large, teeth-gnashing dinosaur who helps him triumph with his pursuit. In Starting School by Jane Godwin and illustrations by Anna Walker , we meet more excited children who are keen to have fun and discover new things. Tim, Hannah, Sunita, Joe and Polly are starting their first day of school. In a gentle, informative story we learn about each child and their perspectives on the routines and events that occur as they embark on a huge adventure that is primary school.
Throughout the day we observe them organise their belongings, familiarising themselves with their classmates, forming bonds, exploring the school grounds, establishing rules and routines, learning new subjects, and reflecting on the busy day. Whilst Walker so beautifully ties in all the minute details with her watercolour and collage characters, school related belongings, food, furniture, real life pieces of work, toys and buildings.
Starting School is a perfect representation of the importance of accepting others, getting along, individuality, responsibility and resilience. Already smitten, the duckling follows Davy around the farmyard and all the way back home. Davy shows true adoration and cares for the duckling like a baby. We watch as they both grow, and we see not only companionship, but empathy, support, pride and encouragement as Davy achieves special milestones.
In a touching moment, an old, achy duck seems to regain some youth when it hears that Davy is to become a father. And it is so sweet to observe a role reversal to complete the story, as the duck now leads baby Molly around the farmyard and all the way back home. But think about it, what better vehicle than a picture book to share some real short but sweet moments of physical and emotional connection between a father and his offspring. Tossing a footy around together is cool too.
However, very little compares to a snuggly story-time session. However, it is not just senseless physiological satire. All are adeptly aided by the bearily beautiful illustrations of Annie White. Like Kisses for Daddy , I love how there is not a single human in sight which makes the twist ending all the sweeter. Pre-readers will gain much through the shared interactive reading this book promotes while beginner readers should have little trouble mastering the straightforward sentence structure and similes.
New Frontier Publishing August Like his previous picture book, Jonathan! Oliver, a box-hat wearing, sk ydiving, sword-wielding young boy is ready to play. He has his playmate sights set firmly on George represented be a glasses-toting brown bear. He is engrossed in his book and no amount of cajoling or niggling by Oliver annoys him enough to turn away from it, not even a bowl of porridge tipped over his head! This scenario of precious determination and contrariness is so typical of kids; it makes my heart dance.
Carnavas never over complicates his tales, nor are they ever overtly visually overblown. Yet they deliver maximum impact with a mere sprinkling of words and a few ingenious strokes of the brush. Oliver and George is no exception. It will be interesting watching how children react to this witty portrayal of themselves.
Due out September With its incongruous title, brazen bright yellow cover and be-speckled bun-toting nanna leaping straight at you, this picture book is hard to ignore. I was suitably intrigued and barely aware of the smile creeping across my face as I picked it up. Author and illustrator team, Damon Young and Peter Carnavas are one of those combinations that work. Together, they have fashioned a laugh-out-loud picture book that captures the very essence of Nanna-Dom without once pigeon-holing our ideas of the beloved grandmother.
Some dress in blue. Some sing out-loud in their cars. Others are into high adrenaline pastimes. She dresses in stealthily black, eats with swords and prefers to juggle ninja stars to watching TV soaps. However, we are never left feeling she is anything other than a worthy and loving grandparent, just like any other, only different.
I love his interpretation of various nannas, at once unique and familiar. My Nanna is a Ninja is a breath of fresh air celebrating the difference and acceptance of nannas that will ring happy bells with primary school aged readers lucky enough to have grandparents.
Whether you are a nanna, nonna, grandma, nanny or gran, make My Nanna is a Ninja the next picture book you share with your grandchildren. UQP March Is it something that causes your mouth to twitch into happy crescent-moon-shapes with each page turn? Is it a bubble bath for your heart, leaving you awash with warm joy? Or does it seize hold of your senses so tightly you forget to breathe? Perhaps it alters your understanding in some inexplicably magic way so that you feel you are living in a world infinitely more meaningful than the one you were in before you opened it?
Enter The Boy on the Page and discover a book that does all this and more. This is an exceptionally good picture book. I find the text as alluring and intense as the scent of summer jasmine. The boy, whom my seven year old declared to be Peter himself, lands one day on a page, previously unadorned and bereft of colour and life.
He experiences a myriad of miraculous life moments. He plants trees, rides horse, even plays the accordion. He climbs mountains, saves lives and puts out fires. He finds love and repeatedly encounters the enormity of the world around him in the most unassuming of places. Yet one thought plagues him; why he landed on the page in the first place. How far he leaps, where he lands and what he discovers is all part of the spellbinding magic of this beautiful tale.
Gentle suggestions bubble to life through all that surrounds the boy; all those he ever loved and cared for. Is it pure whimsy or for higher purpose that we exist? What does happens next? She may be right. Joyfully, like most young of mind and of heart, the Boy on the Page is dripping with sincerity without undue sentimentality and is utterly enchanting to experience. Sunday 20th October at The first time I met the acquaintance of Mr Darcy, I was much enamoured by his unassuming good looks, impeccable manners and sophisticated demeanour. He is after all the stuff of classic novels.
Imagine how I swooned with delight when Mr Darcy re-entered my world, this time with a new tribulation to overcome. Mr Darcy cordially greets his erstwhile friends; merry Maria, dignified Mr Bingley and the comely Caroline but as always feels a little awkward and shy around Lizzy and her sisters.
His hurried refusal to dance with Lizzy intimates a weakness in our dashing hero — he cannot dance. He is very much disheartened by his inability; so much so, he can no longer even acknowledge the presence of his friends. Before long, Mr Darcy is dancing rather splendidly and even taking a few turns about the makeshift maypole.
But will he be able to demonstrate his new found talent in front of those he is so eager to impress without making a fool of himself? Amidst a blaze of colour and twirling of ribbons, he does. You need not be an Austen addict to appreciate the subtle references to the characters of Pemberley Park or to fall in abject adoration of Mr Darcy, a duck of ineffable character and appeal as I did. It is not difficult to care about this be-speckled little duck. Younger readers will adore his bright bow tie and the way he tries to contain his hapless clumsiness. Older ones, like me, will be attracted to the very attributes and humour that make all Mr Darcys so alluring; restrained humility, beguiling vulnerability and brooding charm.
It may be years on, but thanks to the passion and talent of authors and illustrators like Field and Carnavas, the celebration of love and friendship and top hats lives on. She wanted to write books that people valued, kept and read. Value them, keep them and read them, often. Angus and Lucy are simple kids. No TV. No car. Not even a house. Instead, their teensy caravan is jammed to the ceiling with piles and piles of books.
Now, books — they do have. Balanced, propped, stacked, teetering. And in libraries! So while launch and all the excitement of planning and celebrating are now in the past, the real joy continues as readers discover Mochi Queen and Super Sleuth and hopefully find a friend in Jasmine Toguchi. Before I fly the coop, I do want to thank my nest-mates for all their support before, during, and after launch. There is nothing like having friends who are there for you every step of the way. Her favorite writing companions are her puppy, Kiku; rabbit, Aki; and her two ducks, Darcy and Lizzy.
Tagged as Debbi Michiko Florence. Jasmine Toguchi , FSG. I live in Brussels Belgium. I studied arts and I graduated in illustration from St Luc-Brussels. For a few years, I was both an illustrator and a bookseller. Tell us a little about your creative process. How did you come up with Whobert and the other cast of characters? First, I sketched all the characters. It helped me to get their reactions and to find the appropriate facial expressions for each one. After they decided where to put the text and where my illustrations would stand, I made several storyboards small fast drawings with the same proportions of the book to settle who is in the picture doing what and what is the general ambiance.
I tried to find a balance between close ups, large views, etc. It helps with the dramatization of the image. The drawings part was the most creative, fun, personal touch part. They gave me advice more than asked for changes. So next, I drew properly the whole thing, with all the details and the intentions I wanted — every image at the final book size, this time.
Slowly, I found the right tone to satisfy me.
To complete and color, I scanned my drawings to the computer. This helped me to make final changes eyes too close together or add a feather here and there, resize a worm …. If I had to do it in traditional techniques it would have taken ages. Were there any specific challenges you encountered during the process? Any particular joys? Humor is very different over there in the USA. But the most challenging thing for me was the long wait before the launch of the book. In Europe, it takes around 3 to 6 months.
With my project for Whobert, it took more than a year between the finished illustrations to the real printed copies. But the real challenge for me was when I was finishing the pictures, because my year-old French bulldog became very hill. Rushing into work helped me not to be too depressed about it, as he was my hairy muse for so long.
He left us in February A year and a half later we are welcoming our new puppy and Whobert Whover, Owl Detective is going out. The wait for this fun picture book gave me hope and kept me focused on my other books to finish. Meeting Jason through this project and seeing him be so enthusiastic, proud, and thrilled with the result was a vitamin shot to my self esteem. Who is your favorite character from Whobert Whover, Owl Detective? This is quite a tough question, because when I draw a story I need to step into the shoes of every character. He is so funny and stubborn.
With that kind of character you just cannot stay serious about life. What is your favorite part of your work area? Do you have any special rituals or talismans? I work at home in our apartment in Brussels Belgium. I have my own studio. It became harder to focus on the jobs. I love to socialize a little too much. On my desk are my favorites pencils and markers and two mini statues of Ganesh, brought from India and Lao, which are taking care of my projects.
Thank you, Jess! You and Jason make a fabulous team! This is the culmination of over 15 years of writing, learning, growing, revising, querying, submitting, and collecting rejections. Having my chapter books published is a dream come true. I feel so fortunate. Jasmine is on a poster! The reviews all good, thankfully are in. So when does it feel real? This still feels like a dream. A very wonderful dream but, still, a dream. Perhaps that is when it will feel real — when a child reads my books. Pre-launch, so much energy and focus is on getting the words and the art just right, on waiting for the reviews to come in, on planning events, on promotion and marketing.
All of this is, of course, relevant and important and fun. All I thought about was the child who might pick up my book, read the story, connect to the character, and fall in love. In the meantime, I am celebrating this dream come true. Thank you, thank you, thank you! And extra special thanks to my awesome agent Tricia Lawrence, to my amazing editor Grace Kendall, and to my husband B0b and daughter Caitlin! Enter to win Mochi Queen and Super Sleuth!

I think they knew all the dancing and rhyme-reading must have meant their mama loved them so. We read it to her at least a thousand times. She and her husband welcomed their first child four months ago. My mom spent my babyhood singing songs and teaching me nursery rhymes. I knew them all, but my favorite was The Three Little Kittens. I recall reciting it with great dignity to the checkout ladies in Woolworth to much applause and laughter. I would have been about three years old then, similar to toddler Hayley in this picture.
