Exhibition: Simpson and his Donkey

All Events

See these delightful illustrations by Frané Lessac, that help to tell the famous WW1 story, at the State Library of Western Australia from 2 February - 27 April. Free event.

John Kirkpatrick Simpson and his donkey, Duffy, rescued over 300 men during the WW1 campaign at Gallipoli. The colourful illustrations are in stark contrast with the reality of the events and together with the story, give a deeper understanding of the bravery of Australians at war.

This is an exhibition of the original illustrations from the children’s picture book Simpson and his Donkey, by Mark Greenwood, illustrated by Frané Lessac. Find out more.
