A book to share with the very young in which words merge with noises, and the sounds from the chicken coop can be heard for miles around. Pamela Allen is the writer and illustrator of several children's books, including "Who Sank the Boat?", "Bertie and the Bear" and "Mr McGee".
About The Author
Pamela Allen is a phenomenon in the world of children's literature. For almost thirty years her picture books have enchanted generations of children, both in Australia and overseas and many of her titles have won prestigious awards and commendations both in Australia and overseas, and have earned classic status through their enduring popularity with the very young.
Pamela's books are full of the music of language; they are 'fragments of theatre', designed to be read aloud and shared between an adult and a child. Eight of Pamela's titles were adapted for the stage by Patch Theatre Company, and performed in the Sydney Opera House. In 2004, Grandpa and Thomas won the Children's Book Council Book of the Year Award: Early Childhood and The Potato People was named an Honour Book in the same category in 2003, and Grandpa and Thomas and the Green Umbrella was shortlisted for the same award in 2007, as was Shhh! Little Mouse in 2008. Is Your Grandmother a Goanna? won a 2008 Speech Pathology of Australia Book of the Year Award, as did Our Daft Dog Danny in 2010.
