Paul Carpenter

Author & Illustrator

Paul Carpenter, a former advertising creative, draws inspiration from his childhood in the UK where children's TV shows were hand-drawn frame by frame with simple, honest stories and charming characters like Mary, Mungo Midge, Danger Mouse, Mr. Benn, Captain Pugwash, Paddington Bear, and Ivor the Engine.

Paul, who moved to Australia over 30 years ago, fully embraces Australian Christmas traditions but still reminisces about a UK Christmas with snow, snowmen, and a family snowball fight before hot porridge and tea for breakfast.

"Adventures of Rocky with Holly & Harry" is a charming children's book with an Australian twist on the conventional snowman. Created by Paul for his children, Rocky takes them on magical adventures. Perfect for early readers.
