  • Head and shoulders shot of author Alexis Deacon

MLF and The Children’s Bookshow are delighted to present the acclaimed picture book author and illustrator, Alexis Deacon. An image starts to take shape on the screen as the artist’s pen moves across the page, and a ripple of excitement runs through the audience. Is it a bird? Is it a monster? Could it be a little alien far from home? Alexis works his magic as he draws live for the children, reads some of his memorable stories, and talks about how he came to be an author and artist. Amongst his award-winning books are the children’s picture books Beegu, A Place to Call Home, I Am Henry Finch and Slow Loris.

Suitable for school Years 1, 2 and 3
