Thankyou Kids!

Thankyou Kids!

Beautiful letters about peace and justice from kids.

A pile of essays from Tamworth Public School NSW with lots of comments and questions:-

Super Jack illo by kids‘Jack’s mum reminds me of my mum.’

‘You can ask somebody for help whenever you need it.’

‘I Am jack inspired me to tell my parents whatever was bothering ..’

Monkey Baa Theatre’s ‘I AM JACK’ on tour across Australia & going to the USA later this year

… and tomorrow I’m flying to the Sunshine Coast to Voices on the Coast – a youth literature festival with more than 10,000 kids and adults.

Thankyou kids – you inspire me every day. #putkidsfirst





I'm a writer committed to kids in particular. Adults are good too. Want to bring hope through story to my readers. Awarded an Order of Australia, Lady Cutler Award and a Lifetime International Award for Literacy for my body of work, spreading literacy is really important. I'm head of SCBWI Australia East & New Zealand, patron of Monkey Baa Theatre, Ambassador for the Premier's Reading Challenge, Writer Ambassador for Room to Read ... among other roles. I also love heritage and adapting to enhance the lives of people today, which is why I restored The Hughenden Hotel 1870s and The Residences Centennial Park - the only homes in the parklands which are open now for accommodation, events and lots of nature.
