I am thrilled to be launching The Grimmelings in style in Wellington at the Aotearoa NZ Festival of the Arts! The party itself will be at Unity Books at 6pm on 22 February (launched by the fabulous Elizabeth Knox), and on the 24th I’ll be appearing in conversation with Courtney Johnston at the Embassy. We’ll be talking about writing The Grimmelings but also the importance of children’s books, which ones we love, and what we love about reading them as adults. I’ll also be appearing at the schools’ day on the 23rd. Then on Sunday the 25th I get to talk to the amazing Anna Smaill about her new book Bird Life. See you there!
