We got out to the fair this morning at about 11:00am after a nice stroll through town.
As per usual it was bustling with children’s book lovers from all over the world.
Firstly made our way the the HELLO FROM AUSTRALIA stand and said G’day to Ann James, and Anna Solding from MidnightSun Publishing.
Papa Sky and One Step at a Time are on display at this stand, and around the corner at the Hardie Grant stand The Man with Small Hair is on display.
Then began the best part of all…strolling past thousands of children’s books from all over the world. I particularly love the Eastern European books. They just have something else that is hard to put your finger on.
MidnightSun publishing has its own little corner.
Oh look what I see!
Now if you are looking for an illustrator there are thousands who have put their business cards up on these boards. I met a guy from Turkey, Ceyun Sen, whose work is magnificent. Look him up.
Mia was lucky enough to get a high five from this cat during the costume parade.
Walked through the Behind the Mountain in Taiwan stall and their theme this year is animals. This photo is just a small sample of what was on display.
So today is Day 2. We are heading in later on and will be going to the Australia party at the stand and then out for a meal with fellow authors, illustrators , publishers etc.
Ciao for now.
