Billabong Valley

Australian Children's Book Cover by Ian Coate Billabong Cover by Ian Coate

One of my earliest illustrating projects was Billabong Valley working with the talented author, Don Cronk. For a self published book, Billabong Valley has done extremely well. To the present day, it is sold in all states of Australia and has even had success overseas.

Don went on to publish four books in the Billabong Valley series. Illustrators, Elissa Hotchkin and Danielle Harvey added their imaginative talents to this project with some exceptional covers and inside inks.
