Simon McLean's artworks and illustrations are well known throughout Australia and have been used widely in books and posters promoting various environmental campaigns.
The stories for the Simonbooks series are developed in collaboration with Carolina Haggstrom, Simon’s partner in the creative process, who also has a diverse background in the visual arts.
The characters are all inspired by the real and amazing wildlife found in Australia’s natural habitats.
We hope that the stories will entertain and educate as well as awaken an interest in the importance and preciousness of the Natural environment and its inhabitants.
The illustrations are “Old-School” - drawn by hand in watercolours and good old coloured pencils… “ Get ‘em out kids…”
