AbstractHistoryArchive Description

‘At a conference in October 1989, illustrator Jane Tanner was happy to sign my copy of There's a Sea in My Bedroom, her picture book with author Maregaret Wild, but was astonished because it was a 1987 Japanese edition which she had never seen and, it seemed, didn't know existed. Keeping creators informed of such deals is important now that overseas editions of Australian children's books feature in trade publications and are highlighted in the media. It won't have escaped Emily Rodda's notice that her Deltora Quest series has sold over two million copies in Japan and 8 million copies worldwide.’(Introduction 310)
