Five Very Bookish Questions

The lovely Tania McCartney asked me Five Very Bookish Questions over on the Boomerang Books Blog last week. You can read them here; http://blog.boomerangbooks.com.au. It could be that I talk about picture books – and what I think makes a good PB. And there may even be some favourites from my childhood… and now. Pop over […]

Nutty Zucchini Chocolate Cake

When the cupboards are bare and cake is needed… My fridge held a lot of zucchini – but not many eggs. And I stood in need of a cake! Having tried zucchini bread and zucchini in coconut bread, I googled ‘zucchini chocolate cake’ to see what I could find. I found this No Egg Chocolate […]

Catty Competition Cat-tures Cats to Purrrrfection!

But firstly, welcome Alison Reynolds and Heath McKenzie – […]

Madness – Round Three

Voting has started on Round Three of the March Madness poetry tournament, over at Ed DeCaria’s Think Kid, Think blog. The competition is fierce and beautiful. Two musical poems that both capture the essence of music. Whatever the outcome of today’s tightly contested poem, I’m so grateful to Ed and Allan, for pushing me to […]
