On August 20, a group of young explorers were charged with a dangerous mission. They were to travel across wild country to deliver a valuable parcel.

The journey would be punishing. It would test the resolve of the brave young explorers. Most of all, it would provide us all with a pair of unlikely heroes to admire and remember for many years to come.

This is their story.

The Great Expedition is a delightful parody about five children attempting to cross the park to deliver cake to Grandma.

About the Author

Peter Carnavas is a picture book author/illustrator who lives in the hills and spends his days drawing pictures, baking bread, playing Scrabble with his wife, reading to his daughters, walking his dog and listening to music.

Peter Carnavas

Peter Carnavas was born in Brisbane in 1980. As a small boy he enjoyed copying out his favourite picture books and occasionally typed a small newspaper about the goings-on of his household. At age ten, Peter’s family moved to the Sunshine Coast, where he gave up the violin, took up the guitar and learned to fish.

Like most children his age, Peter was an enormous fan of Roald Dahl and Quentin Blake. He spent most of his teenage years playing the guitar and drawing characters all over his school books, often wishing he could draw as well as his brother.

Peter initially studied Media Studies before becoming a primary school teacher. He has conducted cartooning workshops with children, painted school murals and developed an online travel buddy with students, which was awarded an Education Queensland Showcase Award. If it was all up to Peter, he would spend most of his time reading books with his daughter, trying to play the mandolin and drawing little pictures of people.

Jessica's Box is Peter’s first published book.
