Danny Parker

Danny Parker teaches drama at a large private 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.  Together their next picture book (and music) would be Parachute.  Their most recent is called Crusts.

Danny has gone on to create more books in recent years, one called Perfect illustrated by Freya Blackwood, with even more projects in the pipeline. An extraordinary achievement in a very short time!
