Danny Parker

Danny Parker teaches drama at a large independent boys school in Perth.  His first book, No Kind of Superman, was illustrated by Matt Ottley.  The two met while Danny was creating a musical from Matt's multi-modal work, Requiem for a Beast
 
Their second picture book, Tree, was launched with much fanfare by Shaun Tan at the Celebrate Reading National Conference at The Literature Centre on 26-27 October 2012.  The launch also included a live musical piece composed by Matt Ottley which accompanied images from the picture book as Danny narrated the story. The Literature Centre is very pleased to announce that the original artwork for Tree will be on exhibition in Term 3, 2013.
 
Danny has two more picture books contracted, an extraordinary achievement in a very short time!
