Praise for Hazel and the Snails
‘Playful language, delightful descriptions (with a few words much is conveyed) and illustrations (note the snail on the foot of each page) provide the icing on the cake. A debut author to watch.’ — Stella Chrysostomou, Volume

‘A gentle story from a first-time author, told with heart and presented with quirky visual treats’ — The Sapling

Praise for #Tumeke!
‘It is a delight to see a fiction book aimed at the middle reader age with such a unique and visually appealing layout. A quick riffle through the pages should captivate even a relatively unwilling reader. ... The real digital world is represented both realistically and as a subject of valid literary worth. ... [The author] also does a fantastic job of writing in the various registers of the different characters, from the formal emails between a teacher and parent to the hype of an Instagram post from a musician to texts between pre-teen characters talking about their band.’ — The Sapling.

Praise for Skinny Dip
‘Bold and timely. A magnificent range of form from some of our best contemporary voices.’ — Hera Lindsay Bird

‘Putting a poet’s observational eye on the school year, it delivers a wonderful collection of observations and recollections that will resonate with anyone who has been to school, experienced the pain of PE class, grumbled over homework or uniforms, meandered home with a friend, or drifted off in a boring class.’ — Vanessa Hatley Owen, Kids Books NZ
