An­gelo Street magic

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS -

There will be magic in the air when the An­gelo Street Mar­ket­place brings fash­ion, food and more on Sun­day.

AU­THOR and Aquinas Col­lege teacher Tim Bris­tow is not brag­ging when he says “I’m the best”.

He is sim­ply men­tion­ing the ti­tle of his new chil­dren’s book, the much an­tic­i­pated se­quel to Billy the Bril­liant and what he hopes will be a fundrais­ing boon for the Perth Chil­dren’s Hos­pi­tal Foun­da­tion.

Mr Bris­tow will launch I’m the Best dur­ing a fundraiser at The Left Bank next week, bring­ing to­gether auc­tions and raf­fles with a range of spe­cial guests in­clud­ing for­mer Fre­man­tle Docker Luke McPhar­lin and a num­ber of cur­rent West Coast and East Fre­man­tle foot­ball play­ers.

He said he was ex­cited to know that a book launch could make a dif­fer­ence in the com­mu­nity.

“We’re only a small, start-up chil­dren’s book com­pany but we know the im­por­tance of giv­ing and want to en­cour­age a re­ally fun night, which can be en­joyed by all mem­bers of the com­mu­nity, young and old,” he said.

“We wanted the se­quel to be equally mag­i­cal and fun for chil­dren, and we were keen to in­clude themes and mes­sages that kids, as well as adults, could in­ter­pret in their own way.”

Il­lus­trated by his part­ner Natalie Martin, Mr Bris­tow said the book also in­cluded OpenDyslexic font to help read­ers.
