May 9th 2007
Penelope Todd was one of my guests for the very first Write On radio show, when we talked about her book Box. I am delighted to have her back to talk about Zillah, her new book released this month by Longacre Press. Zillah is the final book in the Watermark Trilogy which is written for young adults. I’ll be chatting to Penelope about her writing, the book, and how it feels to let go at the end of a trilogy.
Kiss! Kiss! Yuck! Yuck! is a a favourite picture book in our household and it has been named as a finalist in the New Zealand Post Book Awards and as a Storylines New Zealand Noteable Book. Kyle Mewburn calls Millers Flat home and in 2005 Kyle was awarded the Joy Cowley award to develop Kiss! Kiss! Yuck! Yuck!. I will be talking to him about his experiences with the Joy Cowley Award and his love of writing children’s books.
