Mrs Mancini: The Cat’s Out of the Bag

Cheryl Orsini and I are thrilled to announce that our new book, The Tales of Mrs Mancini is officially out! It’s so nice to see the book on display in the shops and over the next few weeks, I will be adding all sorts of extra bits and pieces to the website including some fun kids activities.

If you would like to buy a copy of the book, it’s available at a wide range of independent bookshops. (You will probably know I am a great fan of the independent bookshop as an institution.) In Brisbane, I like to recommend Where the Wild Things Are, a specialist children’s bookshop in West End, which I know has plenty of copies. Here’s a photo of their beautiful display:

The book is also available online at Booktopia.

I’ll be putting up free patterns for making both the Mrs Mancini cushion, and the toy Mrs Mancini Picnic Set you can see in the photo some time in the next week or so. The free Mrs Mancini book bag pattern (for the bag at the right) is already available here.
