A Boat of Stars: Sydney Book Launch, 1st March 2018 


A Boat of Stars, the new poetry anthology I edited with Margaret Connolly, was  launched in Sydney on 1st March at the Children’s Bookshop in Beecroft, attended by a stellar bunch of contributors. Clockwise from top left : my fellow editor Margaret Connolly, Lesley Gibbes (reading), Pauline O’Carolan, Sophie Masson, Margaret Connolly, and Margaret Connolly and myself.

I can honestly say that it will surely be a book that you and your child keep coming back to over the years….Of all the books I've put out over the last few years, this is absolutely one of the most meaningful to me.

Matt Shanks (Illustrator)

This gorgeous anthology of new poems to inspire and enchant has rarely left my side since I got a copy for both home and school. I've always loved a good poetry anthology, but rarely have I found one so perfectly pitched at the early childhood age group. A must have book for the home and school library and for every early childhood centre.

Highly recommended.

A gorgeous poetry collection for any bookshelf.
