My Dead Bunny cover image***THIS EVENT IS BOOKED OUT***

On this spookiest of evenings, I’ll be at Cannington Library talking about the creepy creation of the picture book My Dead Bunny.

His odour is extremely bad.

But Bradley wasn’t always dead …”

  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!
