Fantastic Lecturer!

I have been playing at writing/illustrating children's books for about a year now. Coming from a career in the animation industry, I have a lot to learn about children's literature. This has been one of the most valuable resources I have found. David Beagley's knowledge and passion for the medium is very inspiring. His Aussie accent is great fun to listen to as well. Fantastic lecturer! Thank you so much for sharing this series, I've listened to it all more than once!
