Book Release - Alfies Search for Destiny

Feb 20, 2015 -- Posted by : admin

Magabala Books is proud to Introduce David Hardy's beautifully illustrated new picture book, Alfie's Big Wish.  David Hardy is an Indigenous artist with more than eight years of animation experience with Walt Disney Animation Studios.  Continuing the playful, lyrical style of Alfie’s Search for Destiny, Alfie’s Big Wish is bound to become a childhood favourite!  The book is aimed at readers 5 – 8 years old.

We have 2 FREE copies to give away to our readers of the new book together with the first book Alfie’s Search for Destiny.  To enter please send your name, address and contact details to WAITOC. 

In Alfie's Big Wish  we join a young boy, Alfie, on a quest for companionship. When at first his friends leave with their parents, Alfie searches high and low for somebody new to play with. There are other kids but they are much older and bigger, and the various animals he encounters all have companions of their own. Sad and lonely at the end of the day, Alfie makes a big wish. When he wakes up, he finds out that sometimes wishes really do come true! 

The Author / Illustrator

David Hardy is a descendant of the Barkindji people of Brewarrina, north west of NSW. For many years he worked in feature film animation with Walt Disney Animation Studios. David now lives in Sydney with his wife and two children and is an accomplished freelance illustrator, specialising in character design, portraits and caricatures. After becoming a father, David realised how lost and disoriented children can become throughout their growing years. He believes that there is nothing more important than family. Alfie’s Big Wish follows the success of Alfie’s Search for Destiny published in 2013.
