Congrats to Hazel Edwards, whose classic There's a Hippopotamus on Our Roof Eating Cake has been included in the international travelling exhibition
of the world's favourites. The exhibition is also travelling to Japan.
This was thanks to Gosford librarian Claire Stuckey, who recently gave a paper at the International Librarians Conference (IFLA) in France.
Children's Laureate Jackie French's Pete the Sheep was also included.
Yet another win for that timeless hippo - congrats again Hazel!
Congrats to Yvonne Sebesfi, whose beautiful mixed media painting recently won the
Art on Loftus Most Outstanding - Open Award
The piece is entitled 'Water - quiet ripples catch a shaft of light.'
Judge Lyndsey Hatchwell described it as a 'lovely flowing composition with skilled use of mixed media'
Yvonne says her piece was 'inspired by the beautiful Blue Mountains - I wanted to capture the play of light on water in a valley glen. I tried some completely different techniques using acrylic and pastels alongside my favourite watercolours.
Her prize was $1,000. Congrats again Yvonne!
