I'm sure you all know BLUE KANGAROO and if you don't here it is below. I happen to know there have been several imagineers visiting STORYSHACK who've said they LOVE 'Blue Kangaroo' so I expect they will be very excited to know that Blue Kangaroo's author Emma Chichester Clark paid a visit to sunny ALldeburgh this very weekend. Look above-here she is with her dog Plum and friends. ...do you recognise the scenery?
She writes and illustrates wonderful books not just for younger readers. You might recognise her illustrations for the re printed FAMOUS FIVE or perhaps Shakespeare's tales OR 'the Orchard book of Greek myths'. I remember reading 'THE BEST OF TIMES' in a Christmas assembly last year- I think I needed a big book version so everybody could see those illustrations. I've been following the adventures of PLUMDOG on Emma's blog which is wonderful-you can see many more beautiful illustrations and catch up with PLUM so take a look at the link above.
WE LOVE YOU BLUE KANGAROO and PLUM
