PEARLY AND PIG TOUR
Thoroughly enjoyed my schools and bookshops tour for Pearly and Pig and the Lost City of Mu Savan. So much fun and so much love for Pearly. Thanks to Walker Books and The Children's Bookshop for making it happen!
TILDA ON TOUR!
Have spent October whizzing around Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane - signing books and visiting schools. And feeling much love for TILDA. Thank you to all the booksellers and schools for your wonderful support.
