COMPETITION WINNER ANNOUNCED. Read on. Twenty years ago  the above sandstone carving by Brisbane sculptor Dr Rhyl Hinwood was erected at the University of Queensland to celebrate the successful publication of some of Hugh’s books by the University of Queensland Press (UQP). Rhyl Hinwood’s carving contains two references to tales from Over the Top with Jim and one from the sequel, Head Over Heels. Can you guess what they are? Also, which incident in Over the Top has clearly left its visible mark on Hughie? Click photo twice to enlarge. A signed copy of The Over the Top with Jim Album will be sent to the winner…

AND THE WINNER IS JENNIFER JENYNS of Ormeau in Queensland. She said Hughie could quote from her email: “Thank you for showing me in my youth that I’m not the only misunderstood child to whom unfortunate things happen, or the only awkward teenager… your books helped me as an adult in a whole new way… I was able to see the good in my parents and to cherish the good memories… there were lots of them, I had just forgotten. I cannot wait to share them with my kids. You’ve taught me that our best ally in life is a good sense of humour”.
