Gavin Bishop is an award winning author and illustrator of books for children. Gavin will talk about his lifetime of writing and illustrating children’s books including his latest book Atua. Julia Marshall is the driving force behind Gecko Press. She carefully selects children’s books by some of the world’s best writers and illustrators, from countries including France, Germany, Japan, Poland and the Netherlands and has them translated into English. Gecko Press also publishes two or three books by New Zealand authors and illustrators (including Gavin Bishop) every year. She will explain what she thinks that makes a children’s book a ‘curiously good’ book.
