It’s ‘Ice Breaker’ publication day!
October 22nd, 2013
Yes, my dears, ‘Ice Breaker’ is now officially in the shops – in Australia and New Zealand, at least. Which is pretty exciting. Have you seen it anywhere? Have you read it yet? If you have, come and tell us what you thought.
Here’s what Elena said about it (she’s one of the girls who is doing a review at the Hobart launch):
Ice Breaker is another extraordinary book written by Lian Tanner. It is beautifully written, the words drawing you in and capturing you in excitement, despair and wonder. It leaves you breathless, making tears swell up in your eyes, creating questions spring to mind and making you not want to stop reading.
Isn’t that nice? And she played around with the cover a bit too, coming up with some interesting effects:
I’ve also been collecting penguins for the launch. 😉 This lot were made by Grade 5 Whelan at Lauderdale Primary School.
This lot were made by Grade 4 Stephens.
This little guy at the front is also from Grade 4 Stephens.
And these plump birds were made by the kindergarten class at Goulburn Street Primary School!
So it looks as if we’re going to have a wonderful assortment of penguins for the launch – AND I reckon more will turn up on the day.
Tomorrow morning very early I’m going on breakfast radio to talk about the launch. Friday I’m going to pick up some BIG penguins, and also take the portholes in to the Founders Room.
And on Sunday …
