AbstractHistoryArchive Description

‘Looking back to the beginnings of Omnibus Books, it is difficult not to be envious of the climate and time in which the small company was created. The year 1981 now seems very propitious, and Adelaide, the place where it all started, appears like a tiny Mecca in the wide world of children's book publishing. But at the time neither of the company's two founders, Sue Williams and myself, had any idea where Omnibus would take us.’(Introduction 299)
