Kids Day at Adelaide Writers' Week

Beneath huge, leafy plane trees and among its shadows are hundreds or readers and writers and tents and children dressed up or listening and watching creators in the Story Tent.

It's Kids Day at the highly-regarded Adelaide Writers' Week and the first time the free festival has been held annually.

I was especially chuffed to be asked to present in the Story Tent. Why? I had my two new picture books, I'm a dirty dinosaur and Meet Ned Kelly, to read and celebrate! The tent was full to overflowing with toddlers, older children, parents, grandparents and others interested.

It was a great time. And my new books sold out.


  1. Hooray for you! I just love the cover of your new dino picture book. Can't wait to read it. :-)

  2. Thanks Rebecca! It's a great cover, isn't it? Ann James has created such an appealing, cheeky character!
