Lily Max re­turns

Central Otago Mirror - - WHAT’S ON -

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.
