Book Launch: MAYA & CAT by Caroline Magerl
The Little Bookroom
The Little Bookroom is pleased to launch CAROLINE MAGERLs picture book, MAYA & CAT! Join Caroline at the Little Bookroom on Saturday August 18th at 3pm to celebrate with readings and fun! ABOUT THE BOOK Maya and Cat is an inspiring picture book about friendship and resilience from one of Australia’s most renowned author–illustrators. On a roof, as wet as a seal, as grey as a puddle, Cat was rumbling, a rumbly purr. What does Cat want most? Feather boas? Pretty pink shoelaces? A boatful of fish under a tiny tin sail – or perhaps something much more valuable? Affectionate and evocative, Maya and Catfollows a child’s kindly impulse to an unexpected conclusion. ABOUT THE CREATORS Caroline Magerl was born near Frankfurt in Germany and came to Australia when she was two. She lived on the yacht her family built until she was fourteen. In 2001 Caroline won the Childrens Book Council of Australia Crichton Award for new talent in childrens book illustration for her picture book Grandmas Shoes (written by Libby Hathorn). Since then she has been awarded a May Gibbs Fellowship and received an ASA childrens picture book grant to work on her book Hasel and Rose. Nowadays she is a full-time artist, illustrator and printmaker.
