Mitch Vane has illustrated many children's books, including the Little Lunch series, A Little Election and The Patch. She hates to draw straight lines!


This entertaining story by fantastic author/illustrator team Danny Katz and Mitch Vane breaks down the election process to its most basic elements; two candidates campaigning and students voting to decide who will be the Prime Minister. A Little Election is the perfect book for parents of children who want to know what the fuss is all about but aren’t ready to get their head around the complexities of preferences and political parties.

Kids' Book Review

Whilst this is highly entertaining, it is also a useful exploration of the election process in terms which children can understand and would be a helpful classroom tool during the forthcoming federal election. Danny Katz uses deceptively simple language which is accessible to kids, and Mitch Vane’s ink line drawings, with splashes of colour, are filled with humour.
