The lovely Molly Palmer, producer of Word Play at Brisbane Writers’ Festival, launched Last Tree in the City by Peter Carnavas, at Avid Reader in Brisbane.
The Carnavas family came out in force to support Peter as he released his fourth picture book in two years. An incredible achievement.
Every one of Peter's books has been launched at Avid Reader.
Peter dedicated his latest book to his three siblings - for his two brothers because they are both ‘greenies’ and to his sister. Peter said out of everyone he knows his sister can ‘take something challenging and make it beautiful’.
Last Tree in the City is a gentle story about making a difference. Peter encouraged children to take a stand for something they believe in. Even, or perhaps especially children can make us stand up and take notice.
This book is one you want on your shelves.
