Book Week 2018: Theme Announcement

Book Week 2018

The theme for Book Week 2018 has been announced – Find Your Treasure

Book Week 2018 will run from the 17 to the 24 of August 2018. The official artwork and merchandise will be created by author and illustrator Anna Walker, creator of Florette and Mr Huff.

When responding to and drawing inspiration from the theme, I’m sure I won’t be alone in thinking….. PIRATES!!!!!

But this theme offers so many other possible links. We certainly treasure books and reading. What else do we treasure? Authors. Illustrators. Readers. Libraries. Publishers. Librarians. Teachers.

Treasure can be found in many places. Beneath the sea, under the ground, in treasure hunts, archaeological digs, dragon hordes and memories. Mem Fox’s timeless story of Wilfrid Gordon McDonald Partridge and the simple treasures of fond memories springs to mind.

Anna Walker’s stunning artwork for this year’s theme highlights the adventure one might encounter in the search for treasure, high in the treetops. The full range of merchandise can be found on the CBCA website.
