Once upon a beach holiday

To the sea, perchance to see

Still life with lizard

A room with a view

The walk to town

Late afternoon selfie

Upon a little hill

Here’s leaf litter to you

Held together with slogans and paint

Too hot to seek asylum here

And finally … does he look like a half-transformed Frog Prince? I think he does

Queensland Literary Awards

I have been on holiday in Byron Bay (bliss) and was thrilled while there to receive news that Big Red Kangaroo has been shortlisted in the Queensland Literary Awards.

Big Red is keeping fine company in the Griffith University Children’s Book Award category.
