Tom Niland Champion
Tom Niland Champion is a terrific new talent in the world of picture
books, and from a famous Australian literary family. He is the grandson of
Ruth Park and D'Arcy Niland, and the son of Kilmeny Niland, with whom
he originally collaborated to create this story. Tom (194cm) has been
writing children's books since he was approximately 56.8cm. The Tall
Man and the Twelve Babies is based on a true story, involving a full
plane stuck on the runway in blistering heat, 12 wily French babies and
one tall author stuck in the middle of it all. After an exciting role as a
journalist in Budapest, Tom currently works as a radio reporter with
SBS in Sydney.
A tall tall man has twelve babies to look after in his tiny tiny apartment. It's not surprising that trouble ensues when the door slams shut and the tall man is on one side of the door with the six girls and the six boys are on the other side … An hilarious triumph from a bestselling family team.
