Sheryl is the most enthusiastic of authors and a mine of information on writing and children's books. Together with Julie Hunt, we headed up to Launceston for the launch of Claire Saxby and Christina Booth's new picture book, 'The Carrum Sailing Club'. The launch was 'a hoot' as Claire said and there are some nice photos on Claire's blog (http://letshavewords.blogspot.com/2011/10/joining-jet-set.html). Christina decorated the cake, following her own illustrations - I'll have to start practising! Afterwards we wandered about Launceston and Sheryl managed to take the following photo making Julie and me look quite tall (that's a short statue):
I must say it is nice to be among such fabulous writers and artists who just happen to be my height, too.
