'Peter Gouldthorpe, a CBCA award winning illustrator, has been colouring the pages of Australian children's literature for nearly three decades. His literary career was launched in 1983 with the publication of Jonah and the Manly Ferry, which he both illustrated and wrote. The intervening years have seen him bring to rich visual life the words of authors such as Paul Jennings, Colin Thiele, and Gary Crew (q.q.v.). His own words, however, have remained mostly unprinted, but with the release of his latest book No Return: Captain Scott's Race to the Pole he once again fills the dual roles of author and illustrator.' (p. 14)
y Developing a Hungry Eye : Evaluating the Visual Narrative in Australian Children's Picture Books Stephanie Owen Reeder , Bruce : 2004 Z1133200 2004 single work thesis During the period studied in this thesis, 1970-1999, picture books in Australia have become increasingly sophisticated and complex. In order to decode them readers need higher levels of visual literacy. In researching this the author has created a framework for evaluating visual narrative structure in picture books. This was then developed and tested on a total of 145 Australian picture books, with special focus given to the works of Ron Brooks, Dick Roughsey and Percy Trezise, Mem Fox, Donna Rawlins, Gary Crew and Bob Graham.
