It's Not Scribble to Me by Kate Ritchie

Thu 22 August 2019

Like little bear, most kids love to draw, but sometimes paper just isn't enough to hold all their colourful, creative, expansive ideas!

While of course kids can be cheeky, generally they aren't drawing on things with the sole intention of making their parents mad!

Actor, radio presenter and author, Kate Ritchie, has written a lovely story from little bear's perspective about the carefree creativity a toddler brings to their family. 

Melbourne-based illustrator and author, Jedda Robaard bring's Kate's story to life, with gorgeous, colourful illustrations created in pencil and watercolour.
