Heading for Brisbane with Four on the Floor

We have a number of authors involved in exciting events around Brisbane over the next couple of weeks.

If you are in town come along and say hello.

Aleesah Darlison will be talking about Musical Mayhem, her first book in the exciting new Totally Twins Series.

Totally Twins is a warm and sparkling series about family, friends and fitting in. Kids will be captivated by 10 year-old-twins Persephone and Portia Pinchgut in this awesome new junior fiction series.

Peter Carnavas will be speaking about his moving picture book The Important Things.
Gillian Cromwell from Busy Mothers described Peter's latest book:

"I love Peter Carnavas books. They are always exquisite. This one is no exception...

A beautiful, beautiful book."

Sydney's Child described The Important Things as a "thought-provoking story".

So, come and join us at Black Cat Books in Paddington, Brisbane.

A special Kids Book Swap for Children's Book Week

Next week is Children's Book Week.Yay!

We are encouraging all the kids to come to Kids Book Swap dressed as their favourite children's book character. We hope parents might join in the fun too. We will be!

We are thinking a bumblebee, a sugar plum fairy, a super sorcerer, a teddy bear or a dragon. We are still deciding. Take your pick and we will see you there. 

Jo Oliver will be reading her two picture books, Pilgrim and Tatiara, answering questions and giving a few inside tips to budding illustrators.

There will, of course, also be cake.
