What a fantastic event the Auckland Writers Festival was with Anne and Helen given the wonderful opportunity to meet three of the worlds leading writers of children's books: Anthony Horowitz, David Walliams and Dave Pilkey. It was fantastic to learn that all three have such enthusiasm for wanting to see children read and are motivated in their writing by the needs of todays young readers.
A Huge thankyou to the teams at Walker Books, Hachette, Scholastic and Harper Collins for allowing us to participate in this wonderful event.
We welcome the under 20 World Cup teams to Hamilton. We have in store a number of non fiction titles aimed at skill development and football themed novels from first chapter to young adult.
