Are We There Yet?

I developed the concept for the Kids Road Atlas and pitched it to Hema Maps. Hema Maps loved the idea so much that one book turned into a series of 4 books that are currently sold throughout Australia and New Zealand. I wrote the activities in collaboration with the editor and illustrated and designed the all the artwork for the entire series (excluding maps). Visit Hema Maps for more information.

Writing Time

Writing Time

Writing Time is a handwriting program for Australian students from F (prep) to year 6. I was the lead illustrator, designer and concept developer for the series and wrote and developed the activity content in collaboration with authors, teachers and early childhood experts.

Developed over the course of 2 years, the series includes over 20 books as well as teacher resources and an interactive online component. The series features age-appropriate puzzles, challenges and artwork to engage students and guide the teaching. Visit Firefly Education for more information.

Amazing Australian Animals

Children will be thoroughly entertained with this fun book full of engaging picture mazes, spot-the-difference activities, and interesting facts about Australia's amazing animals accompanied by photographs taken by Steve Parish. The mazes start easy but get harder, and the last few are very challenging. Available from Pascal Press.
