The very talented Karen Blair has agreed to illustrate my first picture book for small children, Puddle Hunters. Inspired by puddle hunting adventures with my granddaughter, Alexandra, the book will be published by Allen & Unwin and released in early 2018.
I’m very honoured to be launching Wendy Orr’s stunning new novel, ‘Dragonfly Song‘ on Saturday, 2nd July, the same day as the Australian Federal Election. Join us at 4.00 pm at Readings Bookshop, Hawthorn, 701 Glenferrie Road, Hawthorn to celebrate the release of the book. Wendy is one of Australia’s most out-standing and versatile authors for younger readers. ‘Dragonfly Song’ will definitely get my vote on election day.
I love the way a book, once it’s released into the wild, can have many lives. Eat the Sky, Drink the Ocean grew from a conversation in Delhi in 2012. In March 2017, it will be published in the U.S.A. by Margaret K. McElderry books, an imprint of Simon & Schuster. The sky is never the limit.
