Lunch with the Stars 2016!

???????????????????????????????

I had a wonderful day with kids from Kahiba Public School at this year’s CBCA Lunch with the Stars event.

More than 100 kids from 14 different schools talked books with authors and illustrators.

Kahiba school made a gorgeous centrepiece for our table: Ruby Wishfingers at the Dinosaur Disco -where the dinosaurs had brilliant Haiku poetry written on the back of them!

 A huge thanks to all the participants, organisers and sponsors of this fabulous event!
