Bonus Summer Reading Club Challenge – Calling all future Illustrators

Thank you to all the families that have been participating in the Summer Reading Club so far. We have been inspired by the creativity and talent of our readers as they share their stories, creations and challenges with the Summer Reading Club.  

We are thrilled to announce a bonus challenge for our wonderful and creative readers. With the help of a special guide put together by illustrator and artist Brent Wilson, our readers can earn extra points by having a go at drawing their own Koala. 

We can’t wait to see and hear about what your little illustrator’s Koala’s get up to!  

Some of the wonderful illustrations so far

We would love for your children share their illustrations on the Summer Reading Club website, and we are looking forward to the creativity and imagination this bonus challenge will bring, inspiring the next generation of illustrators. Here are some of the wonderful illustrations we have received so far!

Brent Wilson - The Koala Master

Brent Wilson is the illustrator behind State Library’s Koala’s Like to, and written by Shae Millward as part of the 2020 Stories for Little Queensland Series. We also have a great video where Brent Wilson talks about the illustration process, which we are sure you future Illustrators will love.

Koala's Like To

We’ve included a link to a video reading of Koala’s Like To where you family can listen to the story from your own home – a bonus in these challenging times. 

You can also visit your local library or Indigenous Knowledge Centre to borrow a copy of Koala’s Like To, to read together at home.
