Books on Tour - another competition for Books on Tour 'likers' on facebook
We had the launch at The Children's Bookshop, Beecroft NSW which was heaps of fun! A huge thank you to them! And for those who couldn't make it to watch me read the book live, here is a youtube video with the amazing Renee Price and Digby Fixit where we read and discuss The Scared Book.
Are you exhausted yet? I sure am! Another huge thank you to all the places that hosted me over the week.
I must give a special shout out to Romi Sharp from Just Write For Kids for her amazing creativity and effort in taking The Scared Book on tour with Books On Tour. Any book creators reading this, please note - I could not recommend her services more highly for generating creative ideas and content, and being fabulous to work with.
And entries are flying in for the draw/make your own monster competition - I hear that students at Leonay and Whalan Public Schools have been very busy!
Thank you also to a number of reviewers who have posted reviews over the week:

Thanks Debra - I loved all the different facets of your launch - well done! My favourite page of The Scared Book is the page where we can trace the spiral to calm down. What a great strategy for kids to use)
