Free magazine back issue

4 01 2013

In my day job I am the editor of Alphabet Soup—an Australian magazine for kids aged 6 to 12 who love reading and creative writing.

Over on Alphabet Soup’s blog, they are giving away a free back issue to the first 200 people who request one before 4 February 2013.  Do  you know any teachers, librarians or friends who might like a copy? Maybe you’d like a copy yourself?

Head on over there to find out how. (And tell your friends!)

Thank you!


Undercover Readers Club (a blatant plug!)

14 06 2010

Undercover Readers logoOver on the Alphabet Soup blog (where I wear my editor’s and publisher’s hats), we’re launching a kids book review club called Undercover Readers. As part of the cyberlaunch celebrations, we’ve invited a different children’s author/illustrator to visit every day from 14th to 27 June to tell us about what they liked to read as a child (under the covers with a torch!).

SHERYL GWYTHER is our first VIP author — and yes, she did sneak in some undercover reading when she was growing up.

And the excitement continues this week with Aleesah Darlison, Katrina Germein, The Book Chook, Sandy Fussell, Sue Walker and Dee White. (With even more next week!)

Huzzah! *throws streamers about in a jolly manner*
