Woolly Wally gets a sheep-sized makeover

A flash new edition of that popular shaggy sheep's tale Woolly Wally is out tomorrow. 

Illustrator extraordinaire Ross Kinnaird has redrawn all the illustrations in a bold, graphic style that takes this captivating picture book by Dawn McMillan into the top paddock. 
Wally is the sheep supreme, the master of his flock, proud to be the handsome head of his faithful ewes.
But pride, as they say, comes before a fall — or in Wally’s case, a date with the shearing shed. What will Wally and his flock learn once they have lost their fine fleeces? 

First published in 2006, Woolly Wally is a great read for kids of all ages.

Bologna Book Fair in New Zealand Books, New Zealand in Books Ireland

New Zealand books, authors and publishers on the international stage feature in two publications out now.

Peter's report on the Publishers Association of New Zealand (PANZ) presence at this year's Bologna Children's Book Fair is in the latest edition of New Zealand Books Pukapuka Aotearoa.

Meanwhile, the Irish book trade magazine Books Ireland features New Zealand in its latest edition, billing this on its cover as 'New Zealand: So far, so close'.

The coverage stems from PANZ's hosting of current Publishing Ireland President Ivan O'Brien on a visit to New Zealand last year, supported by Creative New Zealand's Te Manu Ka Tau programme.

Ivan reports in the magazine on his ongoing exchanges with New Zealand the similarities and differences between his market and ours.

Also featured in Books Ireland's March/April 2018 edition are Anton Blank's analysis of contemporary Māori writing, an article on Māori publishing and a visit to Time Out Books in Auckland all feature.
