Paul Jennings - UNREAL!

Date: 
Saturday, 13 October 2018 to Sunday, 24 February 2019

Paul Jennings AM is one of Australia’s best loved storytellers. His books have sold millions of copies, won countless awards, been translated into 18 languages and turned into television series. His work explores ideas and experiences that all children face – from embarrassment to being part of the gang, losing things, making mistakes, dealing with people and taking risks to discover new ways of being themselves. Paul’s career began in Warrnambool, where he still lives and works.

In this exhibition WAG presents a magical, imaginary immersive world expressed through his writing, characters and themes and includes original works from illustrators he has collaborated with over the years.
