Author and illustrator live their dreams with book launch

PEOPLE embracing their individuality and realising the potential of their dreams - that's the theme behind an upcoming children's book by an author and an illustrator from Gladstone, C.L. Burns and Janie Petersen.

The two girls are excited their dream has become a reality and cannot wait to share their creativity with the world.

The Creation of Colour will be officially launched on Saturday at the Gladstone City Library at 10.30am.

Face painting and colouring-in are just some of the fun activities on offer for kids, along with an opportunity to make some tribal wristbands.

Illustrator Petersen will hold some drawing demonstrations plus there will be singing and a book reading.

The book will be available gift-wrapped and also in audio form in English and Petersen's mother tongue, German.

Everyone who attends will go into the draw to win a free copy of the book signed by the author and illustrator.

Burns and Petersen hope to touch the lives of as many children as possible through their first book.
