Thanks for the email Emma re Anzac Day and your book competition.
Thank you also for the review, if it wasn't for people like yourself taking the time to review books I would probably pass up most of them.
hey Michelle - thanks for your lovely, lovely words. I LOVE doing this 'job' - so great to hear that I'm inspiring others too!
Have a wonderful day.
Anzac Day book "Tibby's Leaf"
Dear Book Corner,
Please forgive me for suggesting one of my own books for Anzac Day - it's called "Tibby's Leaf" and is a short illustrated book for ages 8 and up, set right at the beginning of World War One. Here is a link with activities put together by the National Museum of Australia. Thank you for a great site!
Crow Country. Wow!
I loved this book. I was gripped from the first time I sat down with it as was my daughter once it was her turn to read it. It is clever and engaging, doesn't give away too much too soon and is one of those books that stays with you forever.
Jackie French continues to keep giving
Jackie French is so prolific and rarely lets one down. I enjoy her books and so do all the kids I know. Pennies for Hitler is wonderful but I loved The Children of the King, it had that Narnia magic ingredient crossed with the Little Princes mystery that made it great for young and old.
Hi Emma, thanks for your lovely comments. I love your comment about The Children of the King having a magic ingredient.
Happy birthday, sir. Your work isirnped me a long time ago and it is part of what is helping me to make my own dream come true. I'm starting art workshops in my home for adults--not to rediscover their inner child, but quite simply to be a kid and make a mess without some silly inner censor saying "THAT TREE IS PURPLE. Trees are NOT purple." Or "your butterfly looks like a toad." I visit the museum when I am afraid my life's run off its tracks, and I wind up looking out over the hills or simply reading six of your books in a row. THEN my life seems just fine. thank you for your joy, your silliness, your work, and your ability to inject us all with a sense of pure happiness. I can never be Eric Carle in my own art. What I CAN be is myself and bring whatever quirky happiness I can onto my own canvas. Stay with us, sir, a long time longer, if you can.
This book is great for enticing the reader who might need even more than savvy word use and gorgeous illustrations to keep them on task. With the clever, creative and beautifully coordinated addition of cut outs, peekaboos and snippets, this book is a low-tech iPad replacement. The story gracefully tells of how we can and should rely on each other to bring out the best in ourselves. Love it!
I LOVE your reviews Jodie, always full of enthusiasm and insight. Thankyou!!
My favourite children's book!
Possum Magic - a fun and enchanting Australian themed story that my 18 month old son requests to be read to him time and time again. I have no problems with this request, because I absolutely love this book. It is my favourite children's story and it really is magical! Another classic by Mem Fox...
Thanks for your review Romina.
Can you believe this book has been out for thirty years now?!
I've just been writing up my review of the gorgeous 30th Anniversary Edition ... it's beautiful!
Fun interactive book - a timeless classic!
This is one of those books that I can remember from my own childhood. Simple language, lots of colour and fun pictures, this book is a timeless classic that should be enjoyed by everyone!
Thanks Romina - I whole heartedly agree with you!
Have you checked out the youtube video (above) featuring Eric himself reading the Hungry Caterpillar?!
"Ketchup Clouds" certainly sounds intriguing. I'll have to look out for it. Is it best to read "My Sister Lives on the Mantlepiece" first, though?
I've read a number of reviews of "Wonder", so that's definitely on the reading list.
Hi Elle, thanks for your comments.
You definitely don't need to read 'My Sister' prior to Ketchup Clouds. The themes in each are vastly different.
Wonder has certainly been attracting lots of attention since it was published - I can totally see why. I have just finished another book you may be interested in - The Fault in Our Stars by John Green - look out for the review soon.

Happy Easter to you!
I just love you! I mean it - I love you - and your books of course. Yay! And thank you forever!
