Eight of Pamela's titles were adapted for the stage by Patch Theatre Company, and performed in the Sydney Opera House.'From Pamela Allen's first publication in 1980 it was clear that here was a creator of picture books with all the glow, gesture, din and dance to capture the attention, engage the imagination, teach, show, tickle and excite small children.' Meg Sorensen, Australian Book Review.Pamela Allen lives in New Zealand with her husband.
