Picture Book Short List Nomination for CBCA award, A day to remember by Jackie French and Mark Wilson


Jackie French doing what Jackie French does best….historical books. This is a slightly different look at ANZAC Day. It covers many ANZAC Days, from the original to the present and a glimpse at the future.

The Illustrator is the main feature, however,  in this category, and Mark Wilson does an interesting and touching portrayal of all the wars that the ANZACS have been involved in and the times in between.

The mixture of imagery complement the historical captions. The human side of the argument is captured beautifully.

This will be hard to beat.

Four and a half stars.
