Two new Billie books for September

I read The Missing Tooth at nearly all the schools I visited in New Zealand* last week and afterwards all the kids wanted to tell me their tooth stories. Then, a few days into my tour, I received a whole package of tooth stories and drawings from one of the teachers. They were adorable. I guess losing a tooth is something that resonates with EVERYBODY. 

Not everybody has stood up to a school bully, however. But Billie, being brave AND bold, finds that even bullies aren't always what they first seem. I hope you like these two new Billie stories.

For anyone Williamstown way, I will be doing a signing at Book and Paper  at 4pm, next Thursday September 6th. Hope to see you there!

*I'm hoping to do a New Zealand post soon, I just have to get hold of some more photos. Stay tuned!


  1. Oh my, these are going to go down a treat at my house! Missing teeth are BIG and EXCITING news, and somehow there is always a bully that needs to be busted.
    My daughters very much enjoyed The Deep End and The Night Fright. You definitely have a knack for tuning into the concerns, fears and interests of five to eight year olds - the stories really resonate with my girls. Thank you.

    1. Thanks so much Jill. It's great to hear your girls are enjoying the books. Say hi to them from me!
