Peter Carnavas visits Sydney

Peter Carnavas is the author and illustrator of four books, Jessica's Box, Sarah's Heavy Heart, The Important Things and Last Tree in the City. The Great Expedition will be released on the 1st May. 

Last year Peter withdrew from teaching full time to concentrate on writing and illustrating. He still teaches occasionally, but now runs workshops for children in schools on illustration techniques and visual literacy. He is highly sought after as a workshop presenter and last week visited six schools in Sydney over three days.

He now has a huge following of primary school aged fans.

Many thanks to Judith Ridge, Western Sydney Young Children's Literature Officer and Paul Macdonald from The Children's Bookshop in Beecroft, both of whom assisted with the coordination of the school visits.
