On Sunday Archie and The Bear was launched with a party at The Little Book Room in Melbourne.
I wasn't there, but I heard from the author Zanni Louise that it was a big success. I would have liked to hear her reading the book.
It was launched in a nice looking black room which goes well with the black bear. We did a limited edition print and in true Australian style it was the prize in a raffle. Thank you, Little Book Room. It's a good bookshop and it even has a cake shop next door.
One boy at the party asked how the pictures got from one side of the world to the other. The answer is in a big cardboard envelope, posted bear mail.
A good time was had by all.
