Tonight I joined in with the Ekidnas - kids' writers at the South Australian Writers Centre. There were many new publications to celebrate and share, and a couple of colour 'first pages' for picture books. Besides meeting everyone (including some of my heroes), the highlight for me was having a nurse of Hattie, Marianne Musgrove's super realistic baby doll. She's bonding with Hattie as research for a story. I want one.
