Last night, I attended the CBCA Vic Clayton’s night where speakers talk about the current titles that they love, and that they think are worthy of consideration for the annual CBCA Book of the Year Awards.

It’s always inspiring to hear people talk about the books that move, entertain, inform and engage them.

I was thrilled to see ‘Meet the Anzacs’ on the Crichton display (for Max Berry’s illustrations) and on the Eve Pownall display with ‘Emu’.

And this morning, Philippa Werry is hosting me at her ‘Children’s War Books’ blog, reviewing ‘Meet the Anzacs’ and interviewing me about the writing of.

Shortly, Philippa will be visiting me to talk about the similarity in the covers for our Anzac picture books and other elements of writing about war.
