Awesome launch of Around Australia in 30 Places

Around Australia in 30 Places

One the 1st of February we were excited to launch Around Australia in 30 Places.

Attention! Attention! Calling all young adventurers.

Starting in Brisbane and ending in Capalaba (the home of Wombat Books), on each page of the book Wombat tells readers what makes the location special. Wombat slops on some sunscreen to visit the beaches of Gold Coast. He spots a roo at Taronga Zoo and gets out his cricket bat to play at Adelaide Oval.

Each page is beautifully and individually illustrated by Australian school children. Below are the finalists for the 2018 Illustration Challenge, whose work will is featured in Around Australia in 30 Places.

At the Mad Hatters Bookshop on the 8th of February, we launched Around Australian in 30 Places. Congratulations to all the illustrators involved. Two of our lovely illustrators joined us for the launch, Blake and Daisy!
