Where was Woolly Wally?

Having a laugh is unavoidable when working with creative people like Dawn McMillan and Ross Kinnaird, authors of bestselling children’s picture books. 

Having a lunch with Dawn, Ross and the Oratia team that brings their books to publication has become a fixture at the start of each year. Dawn always manages a surprise related to work in progress, unveiled at lunch in the Northcote Tavern on Auckland’s North Shore last week . 

With Ross having just finished the redesign of their classic Woolly Wally, a sheepish tale about a ram who’s king of the flock, things took a pretty silly turn. Thanks, Dawn, for your craft genius. 

We agreed not to tag any of the team on social media, though perhaps a bit of sheep dip is on order.

Woolly Wally will be back in stores in his fabulous new livery in June this year (ISBN 978-0-947506-42-1).
