The Day the Costumes Stuck (PB)
A delightfully quirky tale that will stimulate the imagination, and will leave a fun and lasting impression on children. Filled with striking and colourful illustrations by Toby Morris, this book will bring a smile to adults and children alike. The moral of the story that 'everyone has a role to play' is a valuable lesson for children to discover and enjoy.
Shortlised for the 2017 Picture Book Award at the NZ Book Awards for Children & Young Adults
