Froggy Green

I love this book, and was very excited to read this to one of my baby storytime groups just recently where it was well received by all.  In fact, the babies were so attentive to the book and I had never seen anything like it before for such an age group.

I Just Ate My Friend – Launch & Review

I was very excited to attend the book launch – or as the wonderful host said to the children – the book birthday of I Just Ate My Friend.  I love being able to support Australian authors, whether it by purchasing their books or in this case attending my first book launch.  The first thing I did was purchase myself the book and the staff asked if I would like it signed…Yes Please! I was delighted to have a quick chat with the author Heidi McKinnon, who is incredibly humble, lovely to speak to and will delight us with another book in the future…although she is not sure what it will be about yet. 

Ivy Pocket

How does anyone describe Ivy Pocket? Most people think she is quirky, despite being 12 she has the spirit of an old women, she’s exasperating, constantly doing things that she doesn’t realise she is doing, she is unaware of the baddies around her and people are constantly requesting that their home addresses are not revealed to Ivy.  I find Ivy Pocket to be a bit of a train wreck, but inadvertently funny, endearing, imaginative and most importantly a heroine who like to share tall tales while unknowingly getting the job done.
