Heartwarming letters and drawings for My Friend Tertius
With the recent run on school visits for Children’s Book Week and beyond, it’s been wonderful to receive first-hand feedback on what children think of My Friend Tertius, illustrated by Owen Swan and published by Allen & Unwin.
So here’s a show and tell of some of their heartfelt messages, through illustrations and letters. I’m only sorry that I don’t have room to display them all here.
Thank you every one of you for taking the time to write, draw and share them with me. Such a wonderful thing for any author or illustrator of children’s books, to receive. And once again, proof of why we do what we do. Thank you.
And a reminder to teachers and librarians that Anzac Stories: Behind the Pages Exhibition is a great way to find out more about My Friend Tertius, as well as the other wonderful war books and stories from Australian and New Zealand creators.
