Arts Queensland Book Cover Revealed

Arts Queensland book is revealed … Finally.

Arts Queensland Book

In 2017, Karen Tyrrell (that’s me) won an Arts Queensland grant for a children’s picture book.

“This project is supported by the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland.”

Logan City Council generously sponsored and supported my picture book too!

Incredibly, the CEO of Queensland Writers Centre, principals of schools and a wide array of community leaders support my children’s book.

What’s this Arts Queensland book about?

What’s the cover look like?


With much excitement, I’m thrilled to announce my brand-new Arts Queensland book.

Ready. Set. Discover Logan

Ready. Set. Discover Logan by Karen Tyrrell is coming soon!

Ready. Set. Discover Logan tells the friendship between Yana, a newly-arrived girl and an aboriginal boy, Bunji.

Together, they explore 14 sensational destinations in the thriving  green City of Logan.

Ready. Set. Discover Logan is published by Digital Future Press.


Ready. Set. Discover Logan is dedicated to our new arrivals and the original people of Australia, the Aborigines and the Torres Strait Islander peoples.

Who’s the team behind the Arts Queensland Book?

I, Karen Tyrrell created an endearing story of friendship, diversity and acceptance …  jam-packed with FUN and surprises. I’m an award-winning author, writing books to empower kids to live strong.

My two picture books include

Bailey Beats the Blah, Harry Helps Grandpa Remember

Junior novels below … STOP the Bully

Jo-Kin vs Lord Terra, Jo-Kin Battles the It

Aaron Pocock illustrated over 20 breathtaking illustrations of Yana and Bunji interacting with Logan’s urban green environment and innovative technologies. Aaron has illustrated over 250 children’s books, created fine art and even designed a set of mythical creature stamps for Australia Post.

Anthony Puttee from Book Cover Café designed this inventive book and the front cover based on Aaron’s illustrations.
