The Loblolly Boy


Author – James Norcliffe

Age – 9+

Wouldn’t you like to fly? But what if you could never be the same again?

This is a fabulously plotted story, that pieced together effortlessly (not just all tied up quickly at the end) – well deserved NZ Post Children’s book of the year 2010.

Alive Amongst the Dead...Lost Socks Found Inside the Freezer.

So, I have been keeping on with my hundred days of writing outside my comfort zone, or at least mostly outdoors. On the weekend I visited the botanical garden, scouted writing spots to use later on; love the grounds, excited to get started writing there when the weather allows it, which hasn’t lately. 1,542 more words

Review: the Books of Raksura by Martha Wells
