Cecil wants to be in a book. He has been waiting so patiently on a pinboard watching other characters come and go. As Cecil waits and wonders, he can’t help but imagine the great things that might be in his destiny. From the multi-award winning talent of the late Narelle Oliver, comes this magical mixture of photography, sketches, linocuts and objects all working together to create a wonderful story about the creation of a picture book.
