Bologna Children’s Book Fair is almost here and we have just received good news – Pandamonia by Chris Owen and Chris Nixon has been chosen for inclusion in the Hello! from Australia Children’s Book Illustration Exhibition at the 2017 Fair.
As you know, the annual Bologna Children’s Book Fair is the premiere international children’s rights event. There are more than 4,500 attendees from nearly 70 countries. The exhibition attracts a lot of attention and is a wonderful way to showcase the book. One large print will be produced for the exhibition – they have chosen the illustration ‘Flamingos and dingos all do the fandango’. A copy of the book will also be on display, and it will be included in the exhibition catalogue.
And just when you think the rhythm has slowed, a USA edition of Pandamonia is soon to be released by Kane Miller Books in June. We are also delighted that StoryBox Library has released a reading of the book by Chris Owen’s favourite TV presenter Steve Backshall.
