Description

Audrey has the worst case of 'imaginitis' her teachers have ever seen! While other children paint their families, Audrey paints the ogre who lives under her bed drinking tea. Instead of singing about a black sheep, she writes her own song about a desk with legs that runs away. Her alphabet turns into soup. It's clear that her 'imaginitis' is incurable. What's worse, her condition is contagious and soon the other kids in her class start showing symptoms of an equally incurable imagination! As 'imaginitis' spreads, the teachers are horrified and the parents begin to protest too. But perhaps imagination isn't such a bad disease after all? It might even be useful if it makes learning more fun.

The author

Paul Russell is a primary teacher, artist, playwright and children’s author. Having been in classrooms for over 30 years, it really isn’t surprising that all of his heroes are teachers. Paul is particularly passionate about children’s literacy and in building an appetite within children for the written word and sharing stories. Paul is the author of My Storee (2018, EK Books), The Incurable Imagination (2019, EK Books), The Incredibly Busy Mind of Bowen Bartholomew Crisp (2021, EK Books) and Courageous Lucy (2021, EK Books). He has won awards for his stories, with Grandma Forgets making the CBCA list of notable picture books in 2018.

Aśka is an award-winning illustrator, artist and scientist. As an Arts and Physics graduate, she has lived all over the world but now calls Australia home. She has also been telling stories through pictures all of her life. Through her illustrations, Aśka loves to create energetic characters with a curious streak — the best type of friend to take on an adventure uncovering the wonderfully diverse and inspiring world around us.
