Finally I have some breathing time to sit down and tell you about the three fantastic children’s books we have on offer in November for book club members.
We were going to run these ones completely individually but I let life run me ragged and got a little behind, so we are going to offer them all at once and give you the opportunity to make a choice.
At the moment we are still building on our children’s book club selections but we have an offering for three different age groups and I think that’s a great start.
I haven’t had a good look at these yet but I can not wait to read This Is A Book with my very soon to be pre-schooler.
Girlish – Alana Wulff
Being a girl freakin’ rocks! But despite all the opportunities available to girls today, the fight for equality – and self-esteem – continues.
Filled with information, inspiration, truth bombs and surprises, Girlish is a fun-filled self-led discovery course in feminism for teenage girls.
Embracing all the beauty, chaos, hope and frustration of being a girl in the twenty-first century, Girlish encourages the reader to celebrate who they are, define their values and have fun along the way.
With a playful design, illustrations by Frances Cannon, and featuring quotes from inspiring women from all walks of life – such as Michelle Obama, Amy Poehler, Roxane Gay and Lorde – Girlish is the perfect gift for any teenage girl.
This Is A Book -Felicity McLean, Georgie Wilson
This is not – repeat, NOT – an iPad!
It’s not linked. It’s not synched. There are no lights that blink.
It’s so BORING!
. . . or is it?
Designed to look like a tablet computer, this delightful picture book playfully explores the joy of books in a child’s life.
This Is A Book! (no wifi needed) will win the heart of every parent frustrated by the battle to limit screen time, and every child who has never known a world without iPads.

A huge thanks goes out to the publishers without whom we could not offer such great reads. Black Inc. Books and Simon and Schuster we are so grateful for the support you show us, we couldn’t do it without you.

My blurb went missing… so now I have to bring you a new one. One that is a little broader too.
I devour books, vampires and supernatural creatures are my genre of choice but over the past couple of years I have broadened my horizons considerably.
I inhale music, hair metal that satisfies my inner bogan is where my musical passion lies, but again I’ve been exposed to lots of different music I wouldn’t normally listen to and have broadened those horizons also.
In a nutshell – I love to write! I love interacting with a diverse range of artists to bring you interviews.
Perhaps we were perfect before – I LOVE WORDS! Reading, writing, speaking, listening – if it’s got words I’m there!
