What an honour it was to help the wonderful Emma Mactaggart of Child Writes launch her beautiful new book ‘Lily Fabourama Glamourama’ over the long weekend!
Lily’s story is that of a quintessential Australian bush childhood and transports you to the innocence of the 50’s and 60’s in pre-digital Australia!
Lily should be on her way to her Grandmother’s for morning tea, but she is thwarted in the search for a missing shoe. As she looks, she finds numerous chores and jobs that need her instant attention, regardless of the consequences.
Originally, this story was illustrated by Emma in its first outing in 2004 and it was endorsed by NAPCAN (National Association for the Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect) for its positive parenting message. This edition is reimagined (very successfully!) by Ester in 2017.
Emma Mactaggart and Ester De Boer are a multi-award winning duo, and ‘Lily Fabourama Glamourama’ is their second book.
