The Great Expedition

Author(s): Peter Carnavas

Picture Books

On August 20, a group of young explorers was charged with a dangerous mission. They were to travel across wild country to deliver a valuable parcel. The journey would be punishing. It would test the resolve of the brave young explorers. Most of all, it would provide us all with a pair of unlikely heroes to admire and remember for many years to come. This is their story. The Great Expedition is a delightful parody about five children attempting to cross the park to deliver cake to Grandma. A brilliantly crafted adventure picture book.

Product Information

As a small boy, Peter Carnavas enjoyed copying out his favourite picture books and occasionally typed a small newspaper about the goings-on of his household. Peter spent most of his teenage years playing the guitar and drawing characters all over his school books. Peter has now grown up and when he is not writing and llustrating he is teaching children. If it was all up to him, he would spend most of his time reading books with his daughters, trying to play the mandolin and drawing little pictures of people. Peter’s first picture book, Jessica’s Box, was published in 2008. Jessica’s Box was shortlisted for the Queensland Premier’s Literary Award, selected as a Notable Book by the CBCA and shortlisted for the 2009 Speech Pathology Book of the Year Award. Peter was also shortlisted for the Crichton Award
