Jeannie Baker, award winning author and illustrator of children’s books, in conjunction with the release of ‘Mirror’

In an era when the average Australian child spends 20 hours a week in front of a television or computer screen, one of our best-selling children’s authors is bringing children back to books in their droves.

Such is the appeal of award-winning author and illustrator Jeannie Baker’s work that coinciding with the August release of her much anticipated book Mirror, the original works are to feature in a national touring exhibition opening 14 August at the Museum of Sydney, before travelling to seven venues around the country.

Exhibition: 14 August – 10 October 2011
Museum of Sydney, cnr Bridge & Phillip Sts
Open daily, 9.30am-5pm www.hht.net.au
The picture book Mirror is written and
illustrated by Jeannie Baker and published
