We launched In the Snow yesterday at the Avid Reader in Coburg... great store! Lovely location, very nice people - and we had a nice group of kids come out. I was actually surprised, as it was an absolutely gorgeous day and if I could have been outside I would have been!
Once again I have to say how much I love indie bookstores... the feel is so very different from the big boxed stores, intimate and warm. So I say - go to an indie bookstore for your Christmas shopping, you will be glad you did. Otherwise these places will disappear, and that would be a real tragedy.
The felted snowman was fun, when the kids worked together it worked well, I always forget about that element - the not sharing part, and my son - MO, was the worst! Seems sharing mom at these things is not too much fun. The book was received well and then we went down to the fantastic coburg beach and got silly again. A much needed dose of fresh air after traveling and reading before we got in the car again. Now, we just wait for the snow...
I will post pics of felty the snowman tonight as well.
