It’s been a good news week for me:
First, my newest book-baby Head Hog, published by Koala Books and illustrated by the wonderful Ben Wood snuck out into the world – being released without me knowing! This one has been a long time coming, so I’m thrilled to see it finally on sale. The tiny bit of bad news there is that a distribution glitch means it is only available directly through the publisher’s website at the moment, so you won’t see it in any stores at the moment. But it can be bought online from this link.
Secondly, the proofs for my new picture book, Do Not ForgetAustralia, illustrated by Sonia Kretschmar and due to be published by WalkerBooks in March, arrived in today’s mail. I am so excited about the illustrations and design or this book and can’t wait to show it to the world.
I’ve also been busy setting up a new website, aimed at young fans of my books. You can check it out here and, if a child in your life has read any of my books, I would love to hear their reviews or questions through the site.
Hope your week is going well, too J
