I launched Wendy’s series of 12 books ‘How are they Made?’ to hundreds of enthuisiastic Abbotsleigh girls dressed as their favourite book characters.
The research is huge, the books really, really interesting and fun on things around us – paper, pencils, plates & mugs, sneakers, knives & forks, bottles and jar, jumpers, helmets, basketballs, guitars, cans – I love the recycling focus too.
Jacqueline Harvey coordinated the Abbotsleigh Literature Festival and was MC of the launch. She’s also the author of the popular series Alice Miranda – boarding school adventures. Such a great series. The teacher who dressed up as Alice Miranda was a huge hit with the kids. She bicycled into Wendy’s launch wearing a helmet – highlighting Wendy’s ‘Helmet’ book in the series.
