Congratulations Carla Zapel

Carla Zapel is illustrating Kevin Rudd’s children’s book, Jasper and Abby and the Great Australia Day Kerfuffle.

This is one of the pictures that Carla made of my first novel snail when she was a student of animation in the late 90’s. She also made a fantastic cartoon of page 59 of snail  which took her a whole year of ten or twelve hour days. You need a lot of gumption to do animation.

So hats off to Carla Zapel.

I love Carla’s work and she is very talented and clever and I am very excited about this book for her.

  1. Love the title, esp. the word “kerfuffle”. Not so sure about having K Rudd on the girls’ bookshelves though.

    Maybe we’ll borrow it from the library. maybe.
