Last weekend June Perkins and Maria Parenti-Baldey were delighted to launch Creative Kids Tales Story Collection 2 into Brisbane at Hearty Art Studio, Wynnum.
They are two of several contributors of story, poems and illustrations from right around Australia, including Megan Higginson who illustrated both of their works.
They would both like to thank everyone who attended, assisted with the launch, all sponsors, and the Children’s Literature Community of Queensland, who have been nurturing up and coming children’s writers, especially Write Links!
A special thanks to Yvonne, Brittany, Ben and David for superb support on the day as well as to Kylie who pod cast their performances yesterday.
More detailed story on its way!

Bharata Natyam is composed of very rigorous technical and rhythmical parts with some expressive and lyrical components. It is performed on the beautiful and complex Carnatic music.
Allaripu means ‘that blossoms like a flower.’ A purely technical threefold dance performed at three different speeds. It is an expression of the joy of dancing.
