Mrs. T and the Magic Pencil enjoyed its Australian launch at Laugh and Learn toy shop in Randwick. It was a hot and steamy Australian summer day when the latest Verityville title was officially released. With a continual stream of people dropping in to meet the creators there was a real sense of community. School children chatted with the artist and listened to extracts from the story whilst grandparents and parents cuddled babies and heard about the background to the manuscript. It was a happy occasion and I’d like to thank Tania and Annemarie from Laugh and Learn toy shop for hosting this event.
Mrs. T and the Magic Pencil will travel to New Zealand in April to launch the book in Wellington at the Children’s Book Shop in Kilbirnie on Wednesday 12th April at 6p.m.
