Let’s Go to the Bush! – Board Book

by Gwyn Perkins

Now available in board book format, this CBCA award-winning picture book is sure to delight the little ones and their grandads.

Little Iggy doesn’t want to leave the house, but Grandad insists – they always have fun together.

Take a walk in the great Australian outdoors where you’ll find singing birds, wallaby surprises and secret caterpillar messages only grandads understand.

About the Author & Illustrator

Born in Melbourne in 1942, Gwyn Perkins began his artistic career when he won a newspaper drawing prize of one guinea and a box of paints (mistakenly awarded to Miss Gwyn Perkins). In 2018, Gwyn’s first picture book in his Iggy and Grandad series, A Walk in the Bush, won the Children’s Book Council of Australia’s Picture Book of the Year Award.

Gwyn spent many years as a successful animator in the advertising industry before moving to an island north of Sydney to enjoy a slower pace. Now back in Sydney, he spends his days drawing.
