Deborah was the convenor of the Graphic Novel/Illustrated Works category for the Aurealis Awards in 2011. This review/rating is the personal opinion of Deborah herself, and does not necessarily reflect the opinion of any judging panel, the judging coordinator or the Aurealis Awards management team.
From the Aurealis Awards Judges' Report 2011:
Strong story-telling and glorious artwork in this young adult entry mark this as a professionally polished piece about a family ‘in deep water’. Sophisticated use of layout, likeable characterisation and a humourous approach invoke both the terror of deep-sea monsters and the warmth of a family that lives and works together down under.
