Synopsis

Oscar and the Bat by Geoff Waring

When Oscar hears a blackbird singing in the meadow, he has lots of questions about sound. Luckily Bat is just waking up and can supply him with all the answers!

About the Author

As a child, he worried about the big, bad world (Vietnam, the Cold War), but found escape in bird-watching and messing about in ponds. His parents bought him a pre-formed plastic pond for the garden, where he used to feed his pet tench (called Jaws) with woodlice. His parents were actors, so he spent a lot of time in theatres. He always found the models for the sets more exciting than the plays (though not any more!). He drew and painted birds and insects, but then along came girls and punk rock...

Although he draws a lot with pen and pencil, his books are created solely on the computer in Adobe InDesign, a relatively simple design program (Glamour is designed on it too!), which keeps his pictures bold and simple - almost like having scissors and coloured paper to make a collage. He is not a computer whiz, so to have to learn only one program is fine by him.
