About the Book

A BOOK THAT WILL RESONATE WITH AND REASSURE MANY YOUNG CHILDREN GOING TO SCHOOL FOR THE FIRST TIME.

Ozzie lives with his dad in a shipping container by the sea in the Top End of Australia.

Ozzie isn't afraid of much. Not the cool dark of the container when the door is closed at night. Not snakes. Not even of the crocodiles that he and his dad watch out for on the beach during the day.

But there is something Ozzie is afraid of ...

In this delightful story about a boy starting school, Ozzie faces up to his fears of being without his dad in a strange place with new people - and comes up trumps!

Biography

Danny Snell is a freelance illustrator living in Adelaide, Australia. He trained at the Adelaide Central School of Art and the University of South Australia, graduating with a Bachelor of Design (Illustration) in 1992. Danny is a self-confessed bower bird and collector of ephemera, and it is these odds and ends, along with a love of line and texture, that he coaxes and weaves together to produce illustrations for use in editorial, design and advertising. And to ensure that he doesn't forget how to paint Danny (dons an entirely different hat) and illustrates children's books. If the planets one day align he hopes to merge these two disciplines and create something to make you smile.
