The Lighthouse Princess with illustrator Rose Northey


Saturday 11 June 2022, 9:00 AM – 10:00 AM, St Teresa’s School. FREE


Attention all princesses and fisher boys!


Join illustrator Rose Northey for a reading of The Lighthouse Princess by Susan Wardell, a brand-new local children's book published by Puffin Books, and the winner of the Gavin Bishop Storylines Award for Illustration.


The Lighthouse Princess is a fuzzy tale of friendship and independence with magical illustrations.


Rose will read the story, stopping to play I-spy with the quirky details in the pictures.


After this, the princesses and fisher boys will have their own chance to colour in the characters and ask Rose questions about painting the story into life.


Dressing up is encouraged!
