Storytelling with Dub Leffler
Descended from the Bigambul people of South-West Queensland, Dub Leffler is one of Australia’s most sought after illustrators of children’s literature. His award winning, best seller Once There Was a Boy, which he both wrote & illustrated, has attracted worldwide critical acclaim and is now in the permanent collection of The Library of Congress in Washington DC, USA. It has also featured several times at The Bologna Children’s Book Fair in Italy.
Once There Was a Boy is a poignant, universal story of friendship, temptation and reconciliation. 'I wrote Once to show kids that boys have feelings too (just like girls) and that sometimes those feelings can get hurt and that's okay; especially when you're willing to let your friends help when you're feeling sad.' - Dub Leffler.
