I've had a preview of Phil Cummings' & Owen Swan's new picture book, ANZAC Biscuits and wanted to share how well it shows the effect of war on families in a gentle but moving way. There will be a launch at Pegi Williams Bookshop, Walkerville on 8 March 6.00 p.m. I can't wait to get my own sigend copy.
From the February 2013 CBCSA newsletter, 6:
This work [ANZAC Biscuits] has already received the honour of having a spread chosen from the book by the Australian Publishers Association and Books Illustrated for the display at the international book fair in Bologna in March.
The book has also been chosen by the SA Festival of music to be the basis for a new commissioned work to commemorate the Gallipoli centenary in 2015.
