(Character sketches from The Bush Book Club by Ben Wood, Scholastic)
A Wild and Wood Picture Book Collaboration!
Books Illustrated is delighted to promote this March new release picture book The Bush Book Club,
written by acclaimed picture book author Margaret Wild and illustrated
by multi-talented Ben Wood, published by Scholastic Australia.
All the animals belong to the Bush Book Club and love to read. All except Bilby. He can't stay still long enough to read
a book, not when there are somersaults and cartwheels and handstands to
do. What would it take for Bilby to slow down and look into a book?
This is a picture book that everyone will want to share!
Ben has been illustrating for 10 years and has developed a wide range of
illustration styles and skills using traditional and digital tools.
Other books illustrated by him include Louie the Pirate Chef; Give me a home among the Gum Trees; The Wattle Tree and Red Caps Christmas.
Join us and meet Ben Wood at our stand at Fed Square Book Market on Saturday March 8!
Ben's signed books and limited edition prints are available for sale at www.booksillustrated.com.au

Original Artwork For Sale - Mandy Foot
We are very pleased to now be able to offer some original illustrations by Mandy Foot. As
a wildlife artist and illustrator, Mandy is also well-known for her
depiction of adorable Australian animals in her children's books, with a
kaleidoscope of colours throughout the landscapes. From a bus driving
wombat and his friends in The Wheels on the Bus, to a race of old fashioned cars in Captain Kangaroo and the Big Bush Bash, each spread tells it's own story.
