Lily Max returns
Queenstown author Jane Bloomfield has released the second book in her Lily Max series.
Lily Max: Slope, Style, Fashion takes her exuberant fashion-mad character on an adventure on skis.
The novel, for young readers, follows her 2015 debut Lily Max: Satin Scissors Frock, which was a finalist in the 2015 NZ Children’s and Young Adults Book Awards and has been reprinted four times.
This second adventure takes place in a fictional ski town but draws on many of Bloomfield’s own experiences in the Wakatipu basin, including learning to ski and teaching her own children.
A bit of Europe crept in also, she said.
❚ There will be a signing at Wanaka PaperPlus from 12 to 2pm, on Saturday, which mysteriously involves a miniature pony.
