              What drew the boys into the cornfield that day? Bravado? Stupidity? Or was it more? Was it really to discover the truth behind the disappearance of that Pinchly kid...the one who went in, and never came out? AUTHOR: Gary Crew has published over 70 novels and illustrated books. He... is particularly interested in the mysterious and the macabre. Among his many other awards, Gary has won the Children's Book Council of Australia's Book of the Year four times, twice for his novels, twice for his illustrated books. He lives in the cool temperate mountains of Maleny, on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland and loves Jack Russell Terriers. About the writing There are certain places that make us feel uneasy. This could be somewhere like under a bridge, in a cemetery, or it might be no more than an empty room. Whatever causes that feeling, we feel an urgent need to get out of that place: we have to cut and run because we sense that a bad thing is about to happen there. 'Corn Field' is a story about just such a bad place . In writing it, I wanted to investigate the logic (or lack of logic) behind such unnerving and irrational human sensations--and the consequences suffered by those who do not follow their better judgement and leave! Gary Crew ILLUSTRATOR: Aaron Hill is a practicing visual artist and freelance illustrator. He has been shortlisted for the Crichton Award for Illustration ('Automaton', written by Gary Crew, Lothian Melbourne. 2006) and his previous collaboration with Gary Crew, 'Damon' (Hachette Sydney 2011), was selected for Europe's prestigious White Raven award for illustrated books. Aaron is a prolific note taker and sketcher and can rarely be found without a pencil or pen in hand. About the illustrating When illustrating Corn Field I was interested in creating a visual narrative that was in conflict with the narrative presented in the printed (verbal) text. I wanted to explore how visual constructs could be used to force the reader to question the validity of the narr

              In the Beech Forest (Hardback)

              By Crew, Gary; Illustrated by Scheer, Den

              In the Beech Forest ticks all the boxes for encouraging both male and female teenagers (aged about fifteen years) to read. While illustrated books for older readers usually appeal to young males, In the Beech Forest is illustrated by Den Scheer, a young woman in her teens. Ten to... fifteen-year-old males would also relate to In the Beech Forest as its theme is a young man's perilous rite of passage in search of self. The youth involved is actually fearful of the monstrous creatures he faces in his computer games and must overcome this fear to become a man-a growth process which is admirably represented visually with all the irony that only a female teenage illustrator could create: not only does the boy triumph, he realises his triumph by imagining the battle between a monstrous male force and a diminutive female force which the female wins! In Real Boys Voices clinical psychologist William Pollack allows his young male clients to speak for themselves, quoting 17-year-old Tom regarding his rite of passage to manhood: ... people should realise what we go through, what we feel, what problems are important and how they can be fixed. (Pollack, W. 2000. Real Boys Voices. Scribe, Melbourne. p. 377). Every teenage boy could therefore relate to In The Beech Forest which uses both visual images and accessible print text to address these very feelings.
