Last week, my publisher Jane Godwin, Our Australian Girl series editor Davina Bell, my editor, Katie Evans and I travelled up to Wahgunyah to launch the final book in the series, Poppy Comes Home.
The launch took place at the Wahgunyah Primary School. After the launch I did an illustrating workshop with the students from Year 3 to 6.
One of the books in the Poppy series, Poppy and the Thief, is set in and around Wahgunyah as my great grandfather, who came from China during the gold rush, settled, then married there.
I am very proud to say that my grandfather and all his brothers and sisters went to Wahgunyah primary school.
Thank you so much to the principal, Sandra Rosenbrock, the staff and all the students for helping me launch Poppy Comes Home!
