Young readers today are relating to all these aspects of the stories. I was at the launch of the Our Australian Girl series and it was clear that it had absorbed the lives of everyone involved. Why do you think this series is so important to the creators? Well, as I mentioned before I do feel a responsibility not only as a publisher but as a mother and as a female and maybe even as a human being! I wanted to give them credit rather than patronise them. I am very concerned about the broader challenges for young girls growing up today, and here was an opportunity to maybe make a small difference to the way girls see themselves and the way they make choices.
And I am working with people who share these concerns and are passionate about making a difference.

We each believe in the goals and ideas behind the project so fervently that I suppose we probably appear a bit evangelical! But I do feel this in some ways is the most important thing I have contributed so far!
Is there an Our Australian Boy series planned? We have had so many people ask us this question and we are in the early stages of developing something for boys. And it will link in with Our Australian Girl so that teachers will be able to use the series alongside each other in the classroom. What are you enjoying most about working on the series? At the moment I am enjoying seeing the third lot of books out in July land on my desk from the printer.
As each lot arrives, we put them all together and just gaze at them lovingly because the design of the books makes them look so appealing all sitting together, either face out or spine out. Lucia was born in Italy, but moved to Australia looking for new opportunities.
She thinks all Australians keep in their blood a bit of their pioneer heritage, regardless of their own birthplace.
Our Australian Girl: Meet Rose (Book 1)
Lucia is visiting us today to talk about her journey and her work. And I love it. I was born and bred in Livorno, Italy and I moved to Australia in with my partner. In Australia I have seen my first books published. I am sincerely grateful to them for betting on me and my artistic vision.
I really liked to work on the illustrations for the Our Australian Girl series. The most challenging thing for me has been to find images that I could use as references. All the four stories are well set in a specific epoch of Australian history and I needed exactly the objects in use in those years. And some of the objects are very rare to find nowadays: I think has been also a nice way for me to approach Australian history: But I was fortunate enough to have the authors and Davina to my side who helped me and gave me feedback.
This was the first time I worked with black and white illustrations: I really enjoyed the process and I am happy with the results.
For the 64 final illustrations I used watercolor and I added details with a black pencil. I painted the images slightly bigger than the size they are printed on the book.

But Nicholas can see that Stinker's crew aren't very happy. He has to win them over to his side - but how?
