Black Cockatoo and the Summer Reading Club 2018

March 9, 2019

Selection as a Feature Text for Older Readers as part of the Summer Reading Club in 2018 was the first large scale recognition that Black Cockatoo (Magabala 2018) had received. It was such thrill to see our book on posters in libraries all over Australia, and popping up on first pages of library websites.

We had the best fun reading with little Ms 2 as part of the challenge- she loved getting the stickers, tattoos and bookmarks every 10 books she read. At one stage she didn’t have any more room on her chubby little arms to put any more of the tattoos so we started on her legs! We had heaps of fun at the Book Party at the end- a huge thank you to the Ballina Library (Tweed Regional Library) team for hosting our local event.
