We're very excited to present a new collection of children's books called Little Heroes which are now available to pre-order from the Authentic Collectables website.
Five of Australian motorsport’s legends have come to life in a brand-new series of children’s books, celebrating the life and times of the sport’s biggest stars.
Bathurst legends Peter Brock, Dick Johnson, Jim Richards and John Bowe, as well as Australia’s first female and youngest rally champion Molly Taylor are celebrated in the five full-colour books that take you, your child or grandchild on a poetic ride through the highs and lows of their racing adventures.
Pre-orders for the five limited-edition children’s books are open now here.
Written and published by experienced motorsport media man Grant Rowley, the limited-edition books are available for pre-order now and will be released in July 2021.
The first five books, titled ‘Little Heroes,’ retail at $19.99 each plus freight and handling and, due to the limited print run, will be a collector’s item that your family will be able to share for years to come.
Rowley says that he drew on his passion for the sport and his admiration of the stars in creating the Little Heroes collection.
“I’ve grown up with motorsport. Ever since I watched Dick Johnson crash through trees when I was two years old, not a day has passed where I haven’t thought about race cars,” he said.
“The Little Heroes books are my tip of the hat to these five superstars of our Aussie motorsport scene.
“Cartoons and drawings are another life-long love of mine. I guess I've never really grown up! I still love watching cartoons, and I feel there's no better way to celebrate the lives of these great drivers than through illustrations and some easy-to-read poetry.”
Each book features eight original pieces of artwork, directed by Rowley with the outstanding artistic contribution of celebrated design team Avoltha.
The books also contain a biography on each of the heroes, plus a stats bank that ensures their place as a fun, entertaining and informative collectors item.
