Visiting Author Yvette Poshoglian
Does anyone know the most famous book written and illustrated by May Gibbs? Snugglepot and Cuddlepie, of course! Since it was published in 1918, Snugglepot and Cuddlepie has never been out of print, which just goes to show how much people love the characters.
The May Gibbs Children's Literature Trust supports the work of people who write and illustrate for children.
Our most recent May Gibbs Children's Literature Trust Fellow was author Yvette Poshoglin. Yvette is from Sydney and has been a book-seller, a journalist, a teacher and a writer.
I am sure many families from Reception to Year 3 have shared one or more of Yvette's books from the Ella and Olivia series. She certainly has inspired the students not only to read but encouraged them to be creative and write stories. Frankie Fox, Girl Spy series and Escape from Cockatoo Island have all been in high demand since her visit.
