Melbourne Launch:

Nicky Johnston (that's me) spoke at the Melbourne Launch, introducing the book to a gathered crowd. Farrell's Bookshop was a wonderful location and the two volunteer actors from the audience certainly stole the show in their re-enactment of the story.

It is always so fabulous to have fellow authors and illustrators supporting each other, and it was an opportunity for fellow Challenge members to catch up.

Congratulations to both Coral and Heidi and a fabulous collaboration of creative talent. And to think that the 52-week Illustration Challenge was the place that found you two joining exciting.
