The Best You Can Be
This book encourages children to celebrate their natural abilities and talents, and to persist with the things they find more difficult.
I have always loved writing and I am passionate about picture books and their ability to drive and encourage the imagination and creativity of both children and adults. I also spend a lot of time at the beach, I love cooking and I collect antiques (and I really love old watches). Max and George was my debut book. My second book, Fearless with Dad, was released in July 2015. My third book, titled All I Want for Christmas is Rain was released 1 November 2016. I am very proud of this book – it looks so beautiful and I hope it continues to resonate with Australians.
Max and George tackles the insecurities that go with new experiences and that tricky transitional age between the fantasy world of imaginary friends and the ‘real world’ that arrives with the start of school.” - This Charming Mum
Definitely a beautiful must-read for kids. This touching story [Twelve Days of Kindness] teaches kindness to primary school kids and highlights the happiness of finding friends but also that securities can develop from building friendships no matter who you are and where you come from. - Mary, Primary Teacher, Sydney
“It’s a wonderful tale [Max and George] for children, with a gorgeous message. A book about starting fresh, meeting new people, and learning how to deal with a lump in the throat.” - Onya Magazine Review
[This Girl Can Do Anything ] was a really refreshing, modern, beautifully illustrated book that held a great message! The story was short but cute, enough to hold my child's attention, and so relevant. One that I will be reading over and over again. The quality of the book was fabulous, perfect to gift to family and friends, was modern but quite traditional too. We loved reading this over and over again. - Linlou, Toppsta Book Review
