A Happy Hoppy Launch: Squish Rabbit

Wendy Orr � the Well Read Rabbit || Katherine Battersby

I met the lovely and talented Katherine Battersby at the Brisbane Writers Festival last month, and bought her brand new first book Squish Rabbit for my 2 & 6 year old neighbours. It’s passed the test of being a constant bedtime read ever since, so I was very excited when Katherine asked me if I would launch the book into the  Melbourne market, at the Little Book Room at 11:00 on Saturday 5th November.

The link above will take you to Katherine’s blog to learn a little more about this deceptively simple, original and very appealing picture book. Better yet, come and join us to see for yourself!
