Join Megan Daley as she introduces author Zanni Louise and illustrator Philip Bunting to launch their new book Errol! Play Pin the Hat on the Penguin, enjoy an ice cream (with sprinkles on top!), and listen to the story of cheeky Errol.
‘Errol. Errol. Errol! Come this very minute!’ calls Errol’s mum. But does Errol listen? Not very likely. Errol has much better things to do!
Meet Errol, a cheeky and lovable character, who refuses to follow his mum. Even when she counts to three.
Zanni Louise is an CBCA Notable Australian children’s book author. She has published two picture books, a series for independent readers and has more books coming out soon with Five Mile and Scholastic. From this year, her books will be sold in 19 countries. Zanni lives in her little sunshine house in Northern NSW with two girls, one husband and a cat called Mary Feather Flower. Zanni is looking forward to growing up one day, but for the moment, enjoys silly dancing, wanderling, and soft cheese. She prefers not to do the washing up.
Philip Bunting is an author, illustrator, and father of three, based in Queensland, Australia. His books include Mopoke, Koalas Eat Gum Leaves, Kookaburras Love to Laugh, and Sandcastle. He’s at the very beginning of a journey to get more parents – especially dads – reading with their children.
Philip believes that the act of regularly reading with children has the potential to infinitely enrich the lives of both parent and child, and indefinitely deepen their connection.
Megan Daley is passionate about children’s literature and sharing it with young and old alike. She firmly believes that YA literature is far better than adult literature and that picture books are works of art which should adorn the walls of art galleries and libraries. She blogs about all things literary, library and tech at www.childrensbooksdaily.com.
Megan is a Teacher Librarian and was recently awarded the Qld Teacher Librarian of the Year by The School Library Association of Queensland. In late 2017 she was awarded the national Dromken Librarians Award, presented at the State Library of Victoria.
