Books for Children

I am very excited to announce the 2020 publication of my second picture book            with publisher IP Kidz, Watching Through the Day!

Watching through the day cover

Beautifully interpreted by illustrator Nandina Vines, this book is one day’s visual journey with a young photographer who observes small creatures encountered in the southeast  Australian coastal landscape.

Watching Through the Day is an exquisite closer look at all that flies, creeps, weaves and floats about the Australian bush, backyard and seaside, a visual sensual feast that satisfies both nature-lovers and those with a fondness for detail.”

WFTN cover



words by Julie Thorndyke, illustrations by Anna Seed.

Published by IP Kidz, 2018.

Possums high in blossoms…

Dingoes dancing on tiptoes…

Sugar gliders munching on spiders…

Blue-tongue lizards showering in the flowers…

These are just some of the things our native creatures do to get ready for their night time.
