My beautiful doggy friend Theodore (inspiration for Coco in the stories) shows off the new book, Fairy Dancers: Dancing Days. You can download a free pattern to make the toadstool tuffet cushion here.

The Fairy Dancers: Dancing Days, the second volume of stories about Mia, Emma and Grace and their beloved ballet teacher, Miss Ashleigh, is now available from good bookshops around Australia (snapped here in the wild at Kinokunya in Sydney). Brisbane readers can pick up a copy at my favourite Brisbane children’s specialist bookshop, Where the Wild Things Are in West End.

For more about the book, check out mynew blog post, with details about its contents, and how it came to be written, and the site's Fairy Dancers Page

If you’re feeling in a crafty mood, Cheryl and I have added to our free downloadable activity sheets. You can find a wide range of activities for children, and party favours for running a Fairy Dancers party here in the Makerspace Section. New activities include pretend theatre tickets and programs (for Fairy Dancers wishing to put on their own concerts), a paper lantern, and a fairy wand. And for grownups who enjoy sewing, download a free pattern for the toadstool tuffet cushion (as shown in the photo above), here on my adult Craft Page.

You can also order the paperback edition of the first book in the series, The Fairy Dancers,here from Booktopia.
