Blog Tour Book Giveaway

As my first blog tour visit during the National Year of Reading 2012 I'm thrilled to be hosting award-winning Australian illustrator Sonia Kretschmar here on the 13th March. That's just a week away!

Together with author, Sally Murphy, Sonia is celebrating the launch of their picture book, Do Not Forget Australia.

'A heartbreaking yet ultimately uplifting tale. Henri lives in the French village of Villers-Bretonneux. Billy lives in Melbourne, Australia. These two little boys, who live thousands of miles away from each other, share one story that unites Villers-Bretonneux and Melbourne in history. A moving and inspiring story of World War One.'

    Sonia will be sharing with us her methods of working, including the development of a double page spread, her reasons for choosing the mediums used in her artwork for this book and how she researched the historic elements behind the illustrations. You'll be inspired!

    Now the other exciting bit of news is that on the 13th March I will also be giving away a copy of Do Not Forget Australia to one lucky blog reader who leaves a comment. 
    How easy is that?

    In the meantime the blog tour has already started and you can catch up with Sonia and Sally as they tour the country at the blogs listed here. (Live links are on the right).
