Winding down and looking forward to 2010!

I've had a busy year, illustrating and writing, and I'm looking forward to seeing the finished books early next year. First one to hit the stores will be a book I illustrated for Black Dog Books, written by Gabrielle Wang. It's called The Race For The Chinese Zodiac and we are looking at launching it in February 2010.
The next one to come out, also in February next year, is a lovely story by Krista Bell, called Peeking Ducks and published by Windy Hollow.
I'm also really excited to launch a series of four books that I have written for young readers about a fiesty young girl called Billie B Brown. These are published by Hardie Grant and will be out in April next year. I will write more about these in detail later on.
Lastly, I've finally got my new website up and running so have a look and let me know what you think.
