Hazel Edwards was staying at The Hughenden and we caught up about the launch at the St Kilda Film Festival of ‘There’s a Hippopotamus on Our Roof Eating Cake – it got a standing ovation!!!!!!
Hippo is also being shown at the Edinburgh Film Festival with Director Jaimie Snyder speaking there – go Hippo, go!!!!!!
Hazel was in Sydney to speak at Paul MacDonal’d Beecroft Bookshop – the place to go when you’re looking for kids’ books. I bought Margaret Wild & Ron Brooks ‘The Dream of the Thylacine’ autographed by both of them.
I see Margaret Wild in Sydney, but Ron lives in Hobart. So I now have my own autographed copy of this stunning picture book with its lament for the loss of the Tasmanian Tiger.
Kane Miller, my US publisher for ‘Butterflies’ is just back from the Book Expo in New York with warm & wonderful news about Butterflies. She said it’s going to ‘fly’ – Butterflies- fly. I like that. For anyone who hasn’t seen the trailer of Butterflies, love you to view it. I think it’s lovely:-
