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’.
New release!!! Windcatcher
A second book from Award Winning Team – Diane Jackson Hill and Craig Smith.
Accepted onto Scholastic Australian Standing Orders List and Scholastic Teachers List, Windcatcher explores the mysteries of bird migration.
TO BE RELEASED IN OCTOBER 2019
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!
