Book launch, reading by the author + learn to draw your favourite animal - or make up your own!

Saturday December 11 at Craniums toy and bookstore in Whangarei, author Michael Botur launches children’s book ‘My Animal Family,' reading the book aloud with a bonus drawing class guided by local comic book artists.

'My Animal Family' is a 20-page illustrated book which teaches children about their place in the natural world. Mixing hilarious rhymes with scientific facts, children learn about the phylogenetic tree and the relationships between all life forms, with a core message about understanding that humans are equal to all other animals, from Ape to Zyzzyva.

Get your A3 paper, work out a plan for which animal you would love to illustrate, and your illustration experts and local artists Shane Evans, Rico Searle and Michael Botur will help - plus they’ll help you create genus and species name for an animal real or imaginary.

They'll also help you draw some powerful poster lettering so you have some wicked artwork to take home to your whanau.

- Books are $28RRP
- Illustrated animal posters are free for anyone joining in a drawing workshop.
- Stay for 10 minutes or 100 minutes, however long it takes to draw your masterpiece. It's all good!
