We are delighted to declare the recent tour from Ursula Dubosarsky and Andrew Joyner a great success!

In the Booked Out office we were delighted to meet this excellent pair, who bought elephants, koalas and more into schools across Melbourne last week. We were especially  delighted to receive some excellent feedback from Sue Austin in the library at Heathmont East Primary School. Here is what Sue had to say:

The presentation was incredible. Both Ursula and Andrew were very engaged with the audience which ranged from Prep to Grade 6. They were educational and entertaining and I would highly recommend them for any school looking for presenters for a very special literary event. Ursula spoke about the creative process in relation to writing and collaboration and Andrew, with input from the audience, created a very special story book for the school, showing the students how he could create a character from basic shapes.  
Thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to meet such inspirational people!

Sue has also shared the great picture to the right!

Also below is a wonderful story created by Ursula, Andrew and the grade 3/4 students of St Anne’s School:

We are so pleased to that the tour was such a great success – thank you to all the schools who hosted Ursula and Andrew, and of course to this wonderful author/illustrator team.

We look forward to seeing them, along with elephants and koalas galore,  back in Victoria again soon!
