|Sarah Brennan's books.|
Byron Bay Writer's Festival, and read them yesterday and today as well.
I heard Sarah, along with XuXi and Jane Camens at the
"Reaching the World: Writing that crosses cultures for adults and children" talk at the BBWF.
|Sarah Brennan with Dragon and Panda in hand under the lighthouse.|
Sarah lives in Hong Kong and these books are doing quite well over there, apparently.
Sarah bases her book characters off the Chinese horoscope animals.
The two I picked up were based on the dragon (my horoscope sign) and the rabbit...I chose it just because it looked good;-)
|Sarah and friends with a bloody IKEA dragon and panda at the BBWF.|
I was born in 1964, got married and started work full-time at IKEA in 1988, bought my first house around 2000 (have to check that one), got made redundant from IKEA in 2012, and also traded my car in and got another one to use as my car (my wife's old car).
|Dragon hatching from an egg???|
The dragon book starts off on the first page with the dragon having just devoured a child!?
But it ends when a little boy he makes friends with, just to eat, really do become friends when the boy catches fish and weens the dragon off eating kids and on to eating fish instead.

That's because they are both painted by Tracey.

|Abraxas Bookstore, where this blog started basically. It's now gone :-(|
|Not really worth the read though, sorry James.|
It's full of great paintings that Tracey has done of quirky animals.
Oddly enough, animals that you will find scattered throughout this blog over the years, which I have synced with in some way.
If you want to purchase some great prints from Tracey...which I just did...then you can buy them from her store here -
and/or her children's book as well...there are bargains galore at her store.
