A series of panels provide biographical information about Leigh, his art and the development of his characters.

A display of some treasures from Leigh`s studio including original sketches, sketch books and art materials and Illustrations of his famous book characters are presented as giclee prints.

Quote from Leigh Hobbs:

I think the kids who like my stories are primarily drawn to the characters. And to the humour. I would like to think as well that they are responding at some level to a good heartedness within the story as far as how the characters relate to each other and the world in general.

A Books Illustrated exhibition.
