This book lets you enter the realm of Neil Curtis' childhood memories. His evocative paintings and powerfully simple narrative are intensely personal, yet speak to the child in us all. 'I was born in London on a snowy morning in January...not at all like the picture on the cover. I didn't mean this to be a book. It was meant for just me, drawing to remind me where I came from.' Neil Curtis has been drawing from the time he could hold a crayon. He has been illustrating ever since. His most recent picture book, "Cat and Fish", written by Joan Grant, won the 2004 Children's Book Council of Australia Picture Book of the Year Award. This astonishing book of memories is an intensely personal record of the first seven years of his life. Neil Curtis takes you into his world, through a child's perspective, until the time his family leaves England to sail to Australia. "The Memory Book" is his story, but it will reconnect you to the pulse of your own childhood.
