Our Annual Children’s Booktown on Sunday Presents



Sunday 15th October 2019
36 Fraser St Clunes VIC 3370

Be sure to share this information with all the little people in your life!
Join us for an afternoon of face painting, craft activates and a book reading from the author himself at our Annual Children’s Booktown On Sunday Festival. The Clunes Primary School choir will entertain the crowd and who knows, there might even be some crime fighting pigeons there! About The Books

Ever wonder why pigeons always act so weird? It’s because they’re out there chasing the bad guys and saving your butts!

With master of disguise Rock Pigeon, bendy Tumbler, strong Frillback and super-finder Homey, the REAL PIGEONS will solve any mystery and fight any bad guy to keep the city safe!

The Real Pigeons series is a hilariously silly and highly visual introduction to the joys of reading and crime-fighting for readers 6+.

About The Author

Andrew McDonald is a reader and writer of books for young readers.

His series REAL PIGEONS debuted in 2018, with hilarious illustrations by Ben Wood.

His first children’s novel, The Greatest Blogger in the World featured the story of Charlie Ridge, a young blogger navigating family, friends and the perils of internet life. His second novel Son of Death, a black comedy about a family of modern grim reapers, was named by The Age as one of the ‘best books of the year’ in 2015.

He is also the creator of a blog post about ‘camera loss’ that somehow went viral and he wasn’t embarrassed enough to decline an invitation to be a Cleo Bachelor in 2011.

Andrew is a graduate of RMIT’s Professional Writing and Editing diploma and his writing has taken him around the world. He completed an artist residency at Caldera Arts in Oregon, USA and a May Gibbs Children’s Literature Trust fellowship in Adelaide.

He is a regular presenter on the schools circuit in Australia, conducting writing workshops; talking about his writing life; and sharing the stories and experiences behind his books. Enquire about booking Andrew for your school here.

Septembers Children’s Booktown On Sunday Festival will be held at
The Warehouse, 36 Fraser St, Clunes 3370.

The event is FREE but books will be available for purchase and signing.
