The Terrible Plop with Ursula Dubosarsky and Andrew Joyner

When six little rabbits hear a loud and terrible 'plop' by the lake, they create a whirlwind of panic among the animals in the forest. A big brown bear enters, who’s not nearly as brave as he seems, and hilarious antics ensue. This sparkling picture book brings together the zany illustrations of Andrew Joyner and the wonderfully rhythmic storytelling of Ursula Dubosarsky.

The Art of Illustration with Ron Brooks

Ron Brooks has worked on some of Australia’s best-loved picture books, including Fox, Old Pig and The Bunyip of Berkeley’s Creek. His warm and endearing illustrations have earned him several book awards over the years, but he admits the creative process has never been short of challenges. Here, he lets us in on his secret practice of picture-making, sharing tales from his recent memoir, Drawn from the Heart.
