Oct 31: ‘Halloween in Freo’ triple book launch (for families)

Halloween in Freo: an evening of free, family-friendly fun

****** FYI – TIME CHANGES ******
Due to unprecedented demand and group size restrictions at the venue, we are running the launch in two time slots.
If you are already registered for the Spooky Story Trail, then stick to the original plan and come to the triple book launch at 4:15pm for a 4:30 start. You can pick up your library/treat bag then head off on the trail at 5:30pm.
** NB, The Spooky Story Trail is now BOOKED OUT. **
If you are NOT already registered for the Spooky Story Trail, then please come to the launch at 5:40pm INSTEAD. We will run the launch a second time.
Thank you for your understanding – we hope you can still make it!


I’m doing a Halloween launch for my two latest books, Chickensaurus and There’s Something Weird About Lena! And to make it extra special, we’re also launching a THIRD book: Zombie School Teachers by Sigi Cohen and Matty Mitchell.

You’ll get to hear about these three new books, meet myself, Sigi and Matty, and get books signed! There’ll also be prizes for the best Halloween costumes. PLUS you’ll be able to register for the Spooky Story Trail – a walking tour around some secret Fremantle locations – where you’ll hear from some great local storytellers and collect Halloween treats along the way.

This family-friendly event is sure to be spooktacular. And it’s FREE!

  1. We attended a workshop for homeschoolers today and it was awesome!! My 5 year old loves to create his own storybooks and now he wants to make a book and give it to his new hero – James Foley!! Thanks for your inspiration!

  2. Also in addition to my comment above, my 5 year old has now told me instead of being Iron Man or Spiderman when he grows up, he now wants to “work at the library and make books – like James Foley.” How amazing is that!

    1. That’s so nice to hear! Maybe he doesn’t have to give up being Iron Man or Spider-man though (maybe he could be a writer/illustrator as well as a superhero??)

      Thanks for the feedback Hayley!

  3. I’ll be meeting you soon James! I’m one the Curating Kids from Perth Festival! Can’t wait to meet you! 😀
