Country Town

Delighted to announce that Country Town is in the shortlist for the Children’s Book Council of Australia’s Eve Pownall Award!

Isolde and illustrator Louise Hogan have given their first school talk to 125 boys in Grade 6. Unfortunately, Robyn, Isolde’s co-author, wasn’t able to join them because of work commitments.

They certainly enjoyed meeting the students and the meeting got all the boys thinking about asking their grandparents about their family’s history.
