What's included in the pack:

Katerina Cruickshanks by Daniel Gray-Barnett
A joy-filled cheer of appreciation for loud, trouble-making, outrageous kids.

Katerina Cruickshanks is a wild child, a trickster, and a ringleader. But when they wreak some serious chaos, their friends decide their shenanigans have gone too far and say, ‘No more!’

Brimming with humour and warmth, Katerina shows us that there’s no such thing as being too much; it’s just a matter of finding the friends who will love you as you are.

‘This book is as colourful and vibrant as its central character, with beautiful ink-and-crayon illustrations that practically burst off the page. Using charming rhyming text, it is an entertaining read-aloud that will be enjoyed by children ages 3 and up..’
—Angela Crocombe, Readings Kids

‘[A] fast-paced fantastical journey reminiscent of Maurice Sendak and Dr Seuss…Energetic kids will no doubt delight in Katerina’s unruly escapes.’
—Anica Boulanger-Mashberg, Books + Publishing

Every Heart Sings: A Children's Book by Patricia Piccinini
Patricia Piccinini is an award-winning artist who loves exploring the amazing connections between humans and animals. Published by the National Gallery of Australia, Every Heart Sings is her first children’s book.

'I grew up in Canberra and I first realised I wanted to be an artist when I visited the National Gallery of Australia as a teenager. I now live and work in Melbourne and, as an artist, I am interested in what it means to be alive in the present day. I hope to create a world somewhere between the one we know and one that is almost upon us, and to focus on the emotional lives of the new creatures that might emerge. I am interested in our relationships with them and with nature. I work with a studio of people to help make my work, starting with my drawings and ending up with a sculpture, or a video or even a hot air balloon. Skywhalepapa 2020 is a work that continues my relationship with the people of Canberra that began with the Skywhale in 2013. Together they form a skywhale family that will take to the air over Canberra and go on to explore the country and the world. Every Heart Sings is a project that talks about nature, family, evolution, care and wonder. They float into our lives to make us smile and think.'
