Wowee, it’s getting hectic doing these performances during Book Month and a half. On a rare rest day, I’ll be continuing to visit schools all over Sydney and Melbourne. Plus I’m doing gigs at the Sydney Comedy Store this week. Yep, my voice is running a marathon right now!

I’ve been loving every minute, gaining new cHEwY gum gums. Never thought I would see a kid dressed up as Con-nerd for Book Week Parade but it happened today at Kings Park PS 🙂

Here’s some more Con-love from St Pius X College…

It’s always a thrill to see artwork about my own book *blushes*

Here’s a sneak peek of my book week talks…count the toys haha 🙂

I’ve also submitted a story for the Story Factory Anthology…it’s opening in November in Redfern and I can’t wait. The theme was Mars and it was funtastic to write a short story about the red planet.

Book Month continues…POWER ON!

    Hey Oliver,
    Great review for Con-nerd in yesterdays Sun Herald. My students love this book. Our library copies are never on the shelf because as soon as they’re returned they get borrowed straight back out!
