On Saturday I had the pleasure and the honour of launching the children’s picture book, Olivia’s Voice, written by Mike Lucas, illustrated by Jennifer Harrison, and published by MidnightSun Publishing.
It is a beautiful book which is about the silent world of Olivia and the illustrations are almost photographic quality. They were all done in coloured pencil and have had many people asking whether they are photos or not.
Olivia’s Voice is the first picture book for both Mike and Jennifer and it is a perfect collaboration.
Mike gave his usual funny presentation while Jennifer showed pictures of the child models for her illustrations. It was a great game at spotting the kids amongst the crowd.
At the launch two furry friends made a visit…Bandit and Doug from the Hearing Dogs at Hahndorf. They were both on their best behaviour and because they weren’t officially working they were able to be patted.
The book is already on its second print run!
