This week, Random House Australia announced the launch of a new series of classic children’s books, with the first twenty-one books to be published in August. It’s a wonderful list, including some of my favourite children’s books. Alice in Wonderland, Little Women, I Capture the Castle, What Katy Did, Treasure Island, Emil and the Detectives, The Railway Children . . . and guess what? One of the titles is A Brief History of Montmaray! It will have a lovely illustrated cover and will look like this:
Pretty, isn’t it? The other Australian title on the list is Deborah Abela’s The Remarkable Secret of Aurelie Bonhoffen.
In other news, I’m still blogging away at Inside a Dog until the end of the month, so come over and say hello and read about life in wartime England.
