Collins Booksellers and ABC Centre Croydon Newsletter for Spring 2014
Little Dog and the Christmas Wish, Harry and me appear in the above newsletter. It’s one of the nicest articles I’ve ever read about any of my books, so with the permission of Collins Croydon I’ve cut and pasted it below:
Corinne Fenton. Harry the Westie. Love at First Sight …
‘If you love Australian children’s literature, you’ll know the beautiful books brought into our lives by Corinne Fenton. The Dog on the Tuckerbox, Queenie, One Elephant’s Story – yes, Corinne made those legendary stories into picture books. Primary schools adore her for encouraging our kids in their appreciation of local history. Talking of local: Corinne is a Warrandyte lady and her brand new book happens to be about a Westie. It’s a captivating tale, set at Christmastime, with gorgeous illustrations. The book is to be launched at 11 am on 25th October in Melbourne’s Block Arcade and Corinne has invited Harry to be there on the day. They met here at Collins Croydon and fell in love!
We’re clearly excited for Harry, but he’s taking it calmly. ‘Walk, sleep, belly rub, food … oh I guess I can fit in some stardom as well.’
For anyone heading into the city that day, keep it in mind. And have a look in your home library – Corinne’s titles are likely to be on the bookshelf. Otherwise, we can help out and you’ll love them. We shall arrange a signing with Corinne here at Collins Croydon for her lovely new book featuring the wee Westie. It’s called Little Dog and the Christmas Wish. It’s delightful.’
And regarding the launch on October 25th at 11.00 a.m. in Block Arcade – The Right Honourable Lord Mayor Robert Doyle will be launching and Harry will also be there as well as scones, cake and lemonade from the Hopetoun Tea Rooms and The Greensborough Cake Decorating Centre.
