James Whiley has taught in primary and secondary schools for over twenty years. He is married with two children. They live on the edge of the Garigal National Park, just a short drive from Manly and Sydney Harbour.Review:
RIGHT ON COURSE 4 out of 5 stars! In this gorgeous little book, our beloved local ferries are brought to life by this artistic team. Both local residents, Whiley draws on 20 years experience to get the story just right. He knows every tiny detail that makes the trip to Circular Quay so unique and Stanley's fun little adventure is perfect, not only for kids, but for everyone who has enjoyed a ferry ride or two over the years. Hawkins' illustrations are beautifully done. You will recognise all of your favourite spots and smile when you see Fort Denison and his bushy moustache. The shocked look on the seagull's face as Stanley honks at him is my favourite bit. The characters are so endearingly drawn that after reading this book you will find it hard to look up at the Opera House sails again without seeing Joan and Bennelong (the Eastern and Western sails) blinking back at you. --Justine Ruszczyk, Dymocks Books - Warringah Mall, Manly Daily book reviews
