Snowy's Christmas Upcoming Blog Tour

Welcome to Writing Children's Books with Robyn Opie.

Today, I'm announcing the blog tour for a newly released picture book by Sally Murphy, illustrated by David Murphy, and published by Random House Australia. The picture book is called Snowy's Christmas.

Here is a little teaser for Snowy's Christmas:

Snowy’s Christmas tells the tale of a young kangaroo who doesn’t like being different, until Christmas arrives and, with it, a surprise for Snowy. There is something that only Snowy can do to help Santa – and suddenly he knows that being different can be a good thing. Available as a hard cover picture book, Snowy’s Christmas is a gentle Christmas story suitable for kids of all ages. You can learn a little more about the book by visiting the website of publisher Random House Australia.

Sally Murphy lives in Western Australia and has many roles - author, teacher, mother and book reviewer.
She's been writing all her life and Snowy is her twenty ninth published book. David Murphy is Sally's brother in law, but more importantly he has illustrated comics, graphic novels, newspapers, picture books, arts publications, commercial commissions, and fine art pieces.

What a clever idea, Sally! An eleven week tour should keep Snowy in bookbuyers' minds for the required period.
