Behind the scenes: And The Band Played Waltzing Matilda…

AndTheBandPlayedWaltzingMatilda.inddAfter the incredible I Was Only Nineteen by John Schumann and Craig Smith, we’re super excited to reveal another classic song to picture book collaboration, with Bruce Whatley producing a stunning interpretation of Eric Bogle‘s moving And The Band Played Waltzing Matilda.

The results are spine-tingling… get some tissues handy and take a look at the video below to see this unforgettable song brought to life in an incredible fashion.



Have a look behind the scenes as Bruce’s beautiful paintings have been transformed into a timeless picture book:

Waltzing Matilda, Waltzing Matilda… who’ll come a-waltzing Matilda with me?

And The Band Played Waltzing Matilda is out in January, and we can’t wait to readers, young and old, think.
