Cow and the Great Australian Storybook Collection

Pleased to hear that Laura’s and my book, The Cow Tripped Over the Moon, is part of the New Ltd Great Australian Storybook Collection.

The collection is one of those ‘take token to your newsletter’ type arrangements and you get a collector album, and a new book for $2.70 each day for 14 days, starting 9 February 2020. .

If you enjoy Cow, Hickory Dickory Dash and Baa Baa Blue Sheep are similar in look and tone, and are backstories to famous nursery rhymes. Laura and I have a fourth in the series, ‘Humpty Dumpty Sat on the Slide’ which comes out in 2020. Order online or at local bookshop. Alternatively, email me and I will post signed copies which make nice gifts for that 2-6 year old. ($25 each, plus postage, $60 for all three)

Cow has now received a few accolades. It was a CBCA Honour Book in 2016, it was the National Simultaneous Storytime book in 2017, and now it gets this 100,000 strong reprint.

International rights ex A/NZ available. They have reverted to myself and Laura.
