Drawing love

Today I received a large envelope from a school in Queensland.

Inside the envelope was a wad of illustrations and some pages of writing.

The Year 3 teacher has been reading both The Garden of Empress Cassia and The Wishbird to her students and they have responded by sending me their beautiful illustrations together with some lovely words.

I have hung the illustrations on the wall of my studio where I know they will be an inspiration to me in so many ways.
