Pelican’t Do It by Cate Sawyer and illustrated by Kyle Tweed, a dynamic picture book that will have your engaged 4-7 year old turning the pages.
Jealous siblings? PeliCAN AND PeliCAN’T are twins. PeliCAN’T tries and tries but he’s just not good at things his brother likes. Until… he turns up the voltage in more ways than one!
Books are multi-layered. PeliCAN’T Do It is ideal for advanced children to interpret how illustrations add to the story. A jolly light read, or a chance to investigate… you choose.
It’s My Party and I’ll Draw If I Want To
Cate Sawyer and Kyle Tweed planned to launch Pelican’t Do It with a big party on 13th June 2020 but then … well, mother nature sent us all to our rooms to think about what we’ve done to the planet.
Group huddle, and as often happens out of adversity, something extraordinary emerged. To celebrate the launch of Pelican’t Do It, one lucky winner has the chance to win a party hosted by Cate and Kyle!
Here’s how the launch of Pelican’t Do It will be celebrated:
- The first 100 books sold will be numbered and autographed by Cate Sawyer and Kyle Tweed.
- The first 200 books sold will come with two additional play sheets – Pelican’t Do It Join the Dots and Colouring-In. Kids have the chance to see their finished colouring-in published on Hawkeye’s websites and social pages.
- Every purchaser between now and 13 June 2020 has the chance to tell us why their child should win a Pelican’t Do It Party for their friends. READ MORE HERE, including how to enter.

Pelican’t Do It Synopsis:
Pelican’t and Pelican are twins. Pelican is dead-set lucky, but poor Pelican’t is the unluckiest pelican to ever have lived. Pelican rides the highest waves with the dolphins, whereas poor Pelican’t … well … you need to see it to believe it. And you’ll never guess what happens to him when he tries to land gracefully just like his twin brother on a lightpole. Let’s just say Pelican’t manages to turn up the voltage!
Then one day, Pelican’t has an idea! A delightful romp that explores individuality, strengths and weaknesses, determination, and discovering one’s unique talents.Buy 1 Book Delivery Within Australia Buy 1 Book Delivery Outside Australia
