Speaker News: Ben Wood


Booked Outer Ben Wood has been busy drawing up a storm – you may recognise his work from the popular new Squishy Taylor series, which launched earlier this year. Recently, Ben was interviewed by the Kids’ Book Review – to hear more about his life as an illustrator and to catch up on what he’s been up to, click here!

(Speaking of Squishy Taylor – Hardie Grant Egmont is running a super special competition where Squishy fans will have the chance to win a bike, their own height in books, and much more – to enter, click here!)

Ben will be participating in the Sydney Writers Festival’s Storytime Clubhouse event on Sunday, 22 May from 3:00 – 3:30 pm at the Bangarra Studio Theatre. Settle in to a beanbag and enjoy some some stories from the man behind the playful illustrations in the Squishy Taylor series, as well as picture book titles such as Small and Big, Underneath a Cow, and The Bush Book Club.

Ben will also be touring interstate later in 2016. You can catch him in Queensland from 22 – 26 August, and in Melbourne from 29 August – 2 September.
