Brave Squish Rabbit – Book Trailer

Only a few days now until the Brave Squish Rabbit launch. Three to be precise. Our household is bursting with rabbity books and madness. Busy busy. Lots to do.

Like:

  • Baking carrot cup cakes
  • Making fairy bread
  • Cutting out sparkly stars
  • Threading carrots with twine
  • Warming up my illustrating fingers
  • Ironing my dress (I never iron … that’s how special you are to me)
  • Practising my talk (ie. writing my talk)

But before I get back to it, I wanted to hop by for a special something. I’ve mentioned a couple of times that I’ve been working on a little animation for the book … and it’s finally done. Click below to see the Brave Squish Rabbit book trailer. Hope you like it!

Brave Squish Rabbit Launch (Brisbane)

Behind the scenes I’ve been busily scurrying away organising the Brisbane Brave Squish Rabbit launch event. It’s all coming together beautifully, thanks to the wonderful Black Cat Books in Paddington.

There will be a bunny book reading.

There will be live illustrations.

There will be carrots and cupcakes.

There will be music and crafts and maybe a chicken pinata (random? Not if you read the book!)

I just wanted to hop on here quickly to post up the official launch invite. If you’re around, please join us for a Saturday morning full of rabbity celebrations – Squish and I would love to see you (click on the image to see a bigger version):

We’ll also be launching in Melbourne again, and I’ll be back soon with dates.

Now I’m off again for the Brisbane Writers Festival, followed by Write Around Qld and the Cairns Tropical Writers Fest. I promise when I return to do a post full of photos from these events as well as all the amazing schools that welcomed Squish and I over book week.

In the mean time, happy reading…
