Book People: Emma Quay - Children's Books Daily...

I have loved the work of Emma Quay ever since ‘Bear and Chook’ (written by Lisa Shanahan, illustrated by Emma Quay) first landed in my library. It was pretty much love at first sight (I especially bonded with chook:)) and I think I’ve purchased that book for just about every small child in my life,…

Book People: Megan Forward - Children's Books Daily...

‘A Patch From Scratch’ is everything I’ve been looking for in a gardening/sustainability book for years now. Aimed at young children 4+ (and I’ve happily read it to every year level from Kindy – Year Six), this book should be read far and wide as inspiration to all families to start their own patch from scratch…

Book People: Katrina Germein Katrina Germein is the author of what has been one of PudStar’s favourite books for nearly two years now – ‘Big Rain Coming’.

Author Visit: Matt Stanton - Children's Books Daily...

Yesterday I had Matt Stanton come to school as a visiting author/illustrator, thanks to Where the Wild Things Are/Avid Reader. I bring as many authors to my school library as is possible as it is simply the best way I know to bring books to life for young readers. To say our kindergarten children were …

Book People: Anna Ciddor - Children's Books Daily...

I’ve just finished reading ‘The Family with Two Front Doors’ by Anna Ciddor, a story which absolutely captivated me and took me back to my pre-teen years when I went through a stage of reading historical fiction rather obsessively – though this was very different from anything I ever read. Click on cover image or title links…

Book People: Tristan Bancks - Children's Books Daily...

I’ve been an avid fan of Tristan Bancks for many years now, as has my teaching partner Jackie – who teaches a Geography unit each year which supports the Room to Read Challenge, of which Tristan is a proud ambassador; read about Jackie’s 2016 project here. To purchase books in this blog post click on…

Book People: Tania McCartney - Children's Books Daily...

Book People: Tania McCartney I recently commented on one of Tania McCartney’s photos on Instagram. It was a photo of her back garden full of gorgeous Autumn leaves. I said how much PudStar loved leaves and how our leaves in Brisbane are all just green as we don’t really do Autumn! A week or so later…

Book People: Jackie French - author of over a hundred books for children and adults, Jackie French is PERFECT for an author study. Hi Five, Australian Authors, Author Studies, Book People, Children's Literature, Young People, Great Books, Children's Books, French

Book People: Jackie French - Children's Books Daily...

Jackie French deserves every bit of gushing I give her. She deserves bouquets of flowers (native), baskets of organic produce, buckets of compost, hi-fives from wombats, clucks from chooks and a standing ovation from parents and teachers for the gift she has given to our young people. Jackie French has given our children (and many…

Book People: Peter Carnavas - Children's Books Daily...

The first time I ever spied a Peter Carnavas book was in a box of books I was judging for the Queensland Premier’s Literary Awards (now the Qld Literary Awards). It was ‘Jessica’s Box’…which I adored. It is still one of PudStar’s favourite books several years down the track and I often hear Dan (aka Chief…

Book People: Rebecca Johnson I feel like I’ve known Rebecca for the longest time and I cannot believe I’ve not featured her sooner in one of my Book People posts! She was actually one of the very first author visits I ever organised as a beginning teacher librarian – Narelle Oliver was the first, darling…

Book People: Randa Abdel-Fattah - Children's Books Daily...

I read Randa Abdel-Fattah’s ‘Does My Head Look Big in This’ years ago and have been an avid fan of everything she has written since. We have also had her as a visiting author to our school and I would highly recommend her for middle/secondary school visits – students and staff alike greatly enjoyed her…

Book People: Lance Balchin - Children's Books Daily...

So many, many books come across my desk that it takes something pretty special to wow me these days. ‘Mechanica’ has wowed me and more. It is innovative in a way I have not seen in a long time, from its entire concept to its breathtakingly beautiful illustrations and design, to the large, hardcover format;…

Book People: James Lee - Children's Books Daily...

I am asked a least once a week for a ‘scary’ book by young library visitors. ‘Goosebumps’ remain ever-popular but there is not much else on offer for 8-11 year old readers who want a bit of a fright…but not too much of a fright. Enter ‘Ghostworks’ by James Lee – which I was very pleasantly …
