I wish for every child in the world, freedom from war, freedom from hunger, free education, and someone who cares for them and loves to read them poetry.
Thanks so much to the following people for their much valued and precious feedback on Magic Fish Dreaming.
Thank you to the Children’s Book Academy for their recent interview.
Thank you to the Sandcliffe Writers Festival for giving me a voice. And everyone who stopped to look at my book and those of other presenters on the table at the Bracken Ridge Library.
All the people who helped make this book delight in knowing how young readers are responding to the art and the stories and I do pass your messages on to Helene Magisson our illustrator as well.
It gives me hope!
I have begun work in earnest on a sequel to Magic Fish Dreaming. Will keep you posted.
Just read your book to my kids and they loved it, June. I am going to take a copy to their school library tomorrow. What beautiful book. My daughter is 5 and loves to dance, so ‘Storm Dancers’ is her favourite. My boy loves the tawny frogmouth. His favourite. I hope it lands in every library. It’s a gorgeous read.

Read your book to a child in detention on Nauru. He just loved it and wanted it read to him again and again, especially the funny one, ‘Discovering Magic.’
