The Currum Sailing Club on Playschool

This morning thousands of children all over Australia had the pleasure of listening to the story and enjoying the pictures of The Carrum Sailing Club by Claire Saxby illustrated by Christina Booth.

I cannot imagine a more more rewarding experience that to sit back with a cuppa and see your book read on the ABC on  Playschool.

Claire is an old friend. We have share many adventures and supported each others development as writers and storytellers over many years. Her book, There Was an Old Sailor (ill Cassanda Allen) is one of the most loved and popular stories I tell and its no fluke it has sold over 20,000 copies.

Claire has the knowledge and the creative instincts to create wonderful books for children of all ages but her catalogue of stories for early childhood is truly exceptional.

What a buzz it was to climb on my bike this morning and pedal over for some breakfast and to share the Playschool moment with Claire
