Hi there and welcome to the Diane Jackson Hill website.
I am the co-author of a world-wide selling book/CD series ‘Uke’n Play Ukulele’ and after a career change at 60 years, can now call myself a ‘children’s picture book author’.
Chooks in Dinner Suits is a WINNER!
2017 Environmental Award for Children’s Literature – Picture Fiction (Wilderness Society)
2017 CBCA Notables x 2 – Picture Book and Information Book
My new picture book, ‘Baby Band’ has now been published and is available here!
Four picture books have recently been released:
ANNABEL’S DANCE (Wombat Books) – An almost true story of a mud-puddled, super-sensitive sheep. Annabel has trouble being one of the mob but eventually finds herself an enviable place in the world.
#HarmonyTweet – A musical story of community accommodating individual difference which embraces musical terms/concepts and twitter language.
Chooks in Dinner Suits (Museum Victoria) – An incredibly true tale of how big dogs, little penguins and an egg farmer called ‘Swampy Marsh’, saved a penguin colony on Middle Island.
Baby Band (New Frontier) – A baby unleashes hidden talents and brings together a reluctant community. Warning – this story is very noisy!
And, oh yes, I do play ukulele!
