Chasing Shadows – Reading & Signing at Dymocks Camberwell – 11.00 a.m. Thursday 10 April

Tomorrow morning I have the privilege of reading Chasing Shadows at Dymocks in Camberwell. Please see below for all details from the Dymocks website.

Because of this reading, I thought it might be a good time to share some snippets of the wonderful reviews this book has been receiving. Nothing warms the heart of a creator more than these types of reviews.

‘Chasing Shadows is a number of things – soft, beautiful, touching, silent, open, heart wrenching and honest. It’s a picture book worthy of discussion and multiple reads, to truly soak up the meaning, purpose and unspoken pull of its pages.’ Francine Sculli, Buzzwords.

‘Chasing Shadows’ combines beautiful watercolours from Hannah Sommerville with the powerful yet compassionate voice of Corinne Fenton.’ Georgie Donaghey, Creative Kids Tales

‘At its simplest level, this story can just be a story about a puppy winning over a little girl’s heart; at the other end it could be used to support a childthrough a similar experience to Beth, validating their grieving process and offering some hope that they will pass through it. However it is used, it is an important addition to the library’s collection.’  Barbara Braxton, Teacher Librarian, M.Ed.(TL),M.App.Sci.(TL),M.I.S. (Children’s Services) Cooma, NSW.

‘There is the feel of tremendous collaboration between author and illustrator, for without either the story could not be told.’ Sharon Greenaway, Magpies

‘Chasing Shadows’ is a beautiful picture book combining poetic text with warm, empathetic illustrations. ‘ Claire Saxby Aussie Reviews

‘Would highly recommend for classrooms, libraries and families. A beautiful work.’ Hazel Edwards, Goodreads.
