Louie at the Literature Centre

Be on the lookout for swashbuckling pirates in the Fremantle area this term, because The Literature Centre (formerly the Fremantle Children’s Literature Centre) is now exhibiting Louie the Pirate Chef.

Every term, the Literature Centre selects several picture books for their Schools’ Program. The exhibition includes early drafts of each book’s text and images, as well as the final artwork. The centre’s dedicated staff use this material in workshops for students of all ages, introducing them to each story and taking them through the entire process of writing and illustrating a picture book. It’s the only program of this type I’m aware of, and certainly sounds like an excellent opportunity for aspiring young authors and illustrators out there.

Below is a sneak preview of the exhibition.
