Imag­i­na­tions climb Terry’s tree­house

Isis Town and Country - - LIFE -

ASK a group of 10-year-olds what would be on the 91st floor of their dream tree­house and you get some pretty great an­swers.

“Ice cream,” said Madi­son Vacer.

“A footy field,” said Zac Blanch, hold­ing his il­lus­tra­tion proudly.

Lo­cal pri­mary schools had the chance to soak up the weird and won­der­ful world of Terry Den­ton with the open­ing of his ex­hi­bi­tion, the Tree­house, at Childers Art Space, and year four at Childers State School were the first to get a chance to try their hand at draw­ing on Mon­day.

Bund­aberg Re­gional Coun­cil pub­lic pro­grams of­fi­cer Re­becca Ma­clean said Den­ton’s sense of silli­ness were very good at get­ting all chil­dren – but par­tic­u­larly boys – into read­ing.

Terry Den­ton will visit schools when he tours here in Oc­to­ber, in­clud­ing a live night at Shalom Col­lege in Bund­aberg on Oc­to­ber 14 and a free event at CHARTS on Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 15.
