Event Overview: Join us for an interactive session with internationally-acclaimed illustrator and author Gus Gordon, courtesy of the NSW Premier's Reading Challenge and Dymocks Children's Charities, Authors Online Series.
Gus has illustrated and written over 70 books for children. His picture book 'Herman and Rosie' has won numerous awards, been adapted for the stage, and has since been sold into 12 countries.
Gus is looking forward to chatting to the students about his soon-to-be-released book 'Somewhere Else' ... about its evolution from the initial idea to storyboarding, writing and editing, through to the completion of the final illustrations.
Along the way he'll also discuss where he gets his ideas from and why his imagined characters are always animals.
We would like to invite registered schools to submit questions for Gus. The best of these have the chance to WIN a copy of Gus' brand new book 'Somewhere Else', the irresistible story about a duck called George, the possibility of adventure, and taking risks to realise what you value most.
He loves a good, challenging question, so 'fire away'!
