Book Links’ Travelling Suitcases are filled with interesting and curious keepsakes from five of Queensland’s top children’s book authors and illustrators as well as a new case for Australian Children’s Laureate Jackie French. They include their books; edited manuscripts and a DVD of the artists at works. Activities to use in the classroom and in public libraries are included to extend Literature and Arts learning. The Travelling Suitcases will be of particular use to regional, rural and remote schools, and public libraries who have limited or no access to visiting authors and illustrators.
