Nim's Moonlight Cinema

I love hearing about events like this:

Families can celebrate at Maryborough's Portside and Seafront Oval in Hervey Bay.

Moonlight movie Nim's Island, rated PG, will light up both towns along with rides, food stalls and early fireworks.

Nim's Island in Turkey

The Turkish edition of Nim's Island has just arrived - I always love seeing the new cover and have fun trying to work out the words in the title and first sentence of a new-to-me language. Every edition is slightly different - it's not just the language and cover,it's whether it's hard or soft cover, the size of the book, the font, and even the paper.

And sometimes they include an author photo; the Turkish edition has a nice touch, with a picture of Kerry Millard, the illustrator, as well.

But there was one just one little surprise... I've apparently had a radical make-over, and look surprisingly like Paula Mazur, the film producer. I guess it's one of those things that happens with good friends - over time, you tend to merge...

missing messages

I've just discovered that most of my emails have been blocked from November 23 till today. (I wondered why I was getting so few!) So, if you've emailed me, or posted a comment here that hasn't been accepted, please try again. I try to answer all my emails within a week, so if I've ignored you, there's a good chance it's because I didn't get your message.
