Likewise, Patrick’s fourth title, The Dress-Up Box, illustrated by Nathaniel Eckstrom, has established itself as a much-loved Australian classic, and was shortlisted for the 2019 CBCA Picture Book of the Year Award. His 2020 lockdown-inspired Windows was shortlisted for an ABIA, screened on the ABC, and adopted as a beacon of hope by families and schools around the world.
