Book Week Made Easy
Book Week costumes made easy. Whether you’re a parent/carer, teacher, librarian, author or other interested party, CBCA Book Week (23-27 August) is fast approaching. With feet in several camps, Megan and Allison share their tips for taking the fuss out of Book Week so you can focus on the fun. Plus, Allison has tips for kids on how to write funny stories and Megan is name dropping (and, er, sneezing mushroom clouds).
