I signed some more books at Mockingbird Bookshop yesterday (they'd not arrived in time for our gig last week) and had morning tea with my folks at Zimt, a wonderful patisserie around the corner. A friend of my parents bought 'A Nest for Kora' when it first came out and reads it to her grandchildren (thanks Margaret). She reports that one of her grandchildren loves Kora so much, she can't visit without taking 'the chookie book'. Her grandson knows all the words, has given all the chooks names and insists on multiple rereadings.
Now that's what it's all about.
