About Me

My photo
Hi, welcome to my blog. I'm a writer of poetry, prose and plays but my best known work is children's fiction. My most popular books are the Selby series and the Emily Eyefinger series. This blog is intended as an entertaining collection of thoughts and pictures from here in Australia and from my travels in other parts of the world. I hope you enjoy it. (For more information have a look at my website.)

Lead up to Book Week

Children's Book Week is still two weeks away but it's already a very busy time for children's book authors and illustrators. Kris Fegent and Catherine McClellan at Lateral Learning have booked me to speak at lots of schools. I've been visiting schools nearly every day, meeting lots of kids and having a great time.

In the past week I've been to the following Sydney area schools: The Emanuel School (Randwick), Christ the King P. S., (North Rocks), Cambridge Park P.S. (Cambridge Park) and this week I'll be at Blaxcell St P.S. (Granville), Milperra P. S. (Milperra) and St Philip Neri P. S. (Northbridge).

I don't have any parent & school sanctioned photos to show for this year yet. The photo above is a poster from a day of talks I gave two years ago at Caddies' Creek P. S. in Glenwood in the western suburbs of Sydney.

Dear Duncan, Thankyou so much for sharing your time with the children and staff at Milperra last Wednesday. I didn't even mind you 'pinching' my seat. Look forward to meeting again one day. Cheers. Tony Buggy.

Pinching your seat sounds rude. At least I didn't pinch your favourite coffee cup as well. I had a great time there. All the best,
