Congratulations Nicola Bolton

March 1, 2018

Nicola completed the Pumphouse Designing a Children's Book course in 2017 and has just been nominated on the Children's Book Council of Australia's 2018 "notables" list. Nicola, a Hunter-based artist, produced You Can't Catch Me during the course and subsequently self-published her book.


This delightful, rhythmic story is full of fun – follow two energetic dogs as they spend their day chasing a blackbird darting from tree to tree, feeding mulberries to her babies. You can purchase Nicola's book direct from her website.


Designing a Children's Book is a comprehensive course covering all practical aspects of children's book writing, design, illustration, critique and production.



If you've got an idea for a story or character and would like to bring your idea to life, this popular course is commencing again in August 2018 – check out the Courses page of our website for details and let us know if you're interested.
