In March I had not one, but TWO book launches!
The first was for Jack's Funtastic Day, a lovely book I completed for the NSW Health Department. It is all about putting away the screens and finding active ways to have fun - obviously a very important issue in this day and age!
The launch was in NSW so I couldn't make it, but it looked like lots of fun. Check out the gorgeous children they got to act as Jack and Ruby!
Next was the romping stomping Egg Hunting We Will Go published by Scholastic.
It was an EGGStravaganza at The Little Bookroom in Carlton, Melbourne. Leesa was the fantastic hostess with SO much energy, and then I was lucky to have none other than Peter Rabbit launch the book, and a little mini batman as my sidekick! Check out the pics below - so much fun!
I'm so lucky to work in this industry and have this be part of my job :-)
Egg Hunting also received a fantastic 5/5 star review at The Neverending Bookshelf. An excerpt:
Simply put this is the most stunning Easter book of the year. While Jay Laga’aia’s narrative and lyrics is fun and quirky, it’s Kim Fleming’s illustrations that tip this book over the edge. Bold and bright, Fleming held nothing back with this book. Featuring bright pastel colours and full double page illustrations, this book is not only eye catching but it’s a ton of fun too! The illustrations are so stunning that you won’t mind reading the book over and over to your child this Easter.
Wow! Thank you so much for your kind words!
