Boondaburra my new picture book!

Boondaburra written by Natalie Lonsdale is the latest book I have illustrated. I had great fun researching and illustrating this amazing Australian animal.
Boondaburra is the story of a platypus’ journey from rejection to accepting and understanding his uniqueness, and the friends who come to accept and admire those differences.

From the book:
"Boondaburra is sad. Why do the other animals make fun of him just because he is different? When tragedy strikes in the Australian bush, Boondaburra learns that being unique has its advantages". 

Natalie's manuscript won the 2011 CALEB Unpublished manuscript competition. For more about the competition please see here: http://www.omegawriters.com/calebprize.html
