Courtesy of Nidhi Sharma we have this picture of Russ the Story Bus. Almost certainly an ex Sydney Buses PMC bodied Mercedes O405 the bus is currentkly registered CF33ML disguising its original identity. It is seen in action in Circular Quay on Australia Day last weekend. Russ has been visiting schools since 2014, visiting Western Sydney regularly, two tours of regional NSW, as part of our annual Children’s Festival of Moving Stories. For the first time in 2017, Russ visited regional Victoria and the Australian Capital Territory. Russ is a creative space where kids can browse a library full of the latest children’s books, choose a book to take home, listen to a story and hear authors and illustrators talk about their craft. His exterior is covered in artwork by leading children’s book illustrator and author Cheryl Orsini, and his interior is fitted out with custom bookshelves designed by an award-winning architectural firm. Full of books for children of all ages, Russ hits the road each year to visit primary schools, bringing some of Australia’s best children’s writers and illustrators along for the ride.
