Today is publication day for our launch title, Duncan Ball’s fantastic collection, This School is Driving Me Nuts and Other Funny Plays for Kids, illustrated by Craig Smith. We are thrilled to be publishing this fabulous book, and congratulate Duncan, Craig, and our hard-working Second Look team on a great production.
You can get the book in print or ebook format from bookshops, online and physical, all over Australia, as well as several retailers in the UK, USA, New Zealand, Canada, and several other countries, and from library suppliers worldwide too.
Second Look Publishing is a new imprint from Christmas Press, and is dedicated to republishing great Australian children’s books that have been undeservedly out of print. We will be publishing them in both ebook and high-quality print-on-demand formats.
With a very heartfelt thank you to Australia Post for an Our Neighbourhood small business grant, we are able to bring you two fabulous titles this year, starting with This School is Driving Me Nuts, a collection of hilarious plays for children by popular author Duncan Ball, with pictures by well-known illustrator Craig Smith. It will be published in March 2016.
Our second book, out in July, will be an illustrated new edition of Eleanor, Elizabeth by Libby Gleeson, this multi-award-winning writer’s first novel, and will feature an introduction by the author.
The third book, to be contracted in 2016 and published in early 2017, is still being negotiated–watch this space!
