Cocoon book launch with Aura Parker

Cocoon book launch with Aura Parker

Join us in celebrating the release of Cocoon, a new picture book by author and illustrator Aura Parker!

Dawn and her best friends have a plan! They are going to eat as many leaves as they can, weave cocoons and turn into moths so they can FLY! Easy peasy, right? But what happens when days go by and Dawn still doesn’t have her wings? What if she doesn’t grow them at all? Will Dawn ever get to chase the lights with her friends?

Come along for a special presentation including storytime, bug games and a demonstration of how Aura illustrates her characters. Grab a signed copy of the book and have your photo taken with wings!

Recommended for ages 3-7.

RSVP in store, by phone: 02 9262 7996, email, or via Eventbrite.
